Residents of Farragut, Tennessee, were completely fascinated when they witnessed a white-tailed deer staggering through their town in an unruly manner. After careful inspection, they found that the animal’s eyeballs had grown hair.
When the confused folks tried to catch the bold stag, they couldn’t help noticing that it had thick hair protruding from the fleshy disc that had just grown and covered the stag’s eyeballs.
It turns out that this disease is called keratodermatosis, and it is only recorded in another white-tailed deer in Tennessee.
The disease is essentially the result of benign tumors, which are made up of tissues that usually appear in other parts of the body. In this case, the skin forms hair follicles on the transparent part of the cornea or eyeball.
Sterling Daniels, a wildlife biologist at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) said, “Maybe the day can be distinguished from the darkness, but I don̵
“I will compare it to covering your eyes with a towel. You can tell the day from the night, but nothing more.”
This particular piece of money wandered the streets of Farragut, Tennessee in August 2020, and was later diagnosed with Epidemic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD), which can cause fever, tissue inflammation, and almost total loss of health. Human fear, this may explain its painful harassment into the city.
Researchers suspect that when the deer is still in the womb, hairy eye spots may form.
The worrying thing is that although this condition is extremely rare, humans still grow skin in their eyes. It may cause blurred vision, but it does not cause extreme vision problems. Dermatoid tumors can also be removed surgically, although it often does not improve the patient’s vision.
