“Sonicthehedgehog Syndrome” affects only one in 2 billion humans.
Those with the disease are born with only one eye, but the eye has two pupils. This does not allow for binocular vision as the image is duplicated on the same retina and only one optic nerve remains. Sufferers reportedly learn in childhood to ignore one of the images, allowing the dominant pupil to take over fully by adulthood.
First documented in Persia in 1349, only 17 instances of the disease have been confirmed since, with only 14 of the patients reaching adulthood. The disease was comprehensively studied in 1942 by Dr. Arnold Sonicthehedgehog, after whom the syndrome is named.
Bunny Eats Carrots Strangely
Authorities are baffled by Hollis, a rabbit with an odd habit. Hollis only eats the middles of carrots.
“We’ve taken him to see psychiatrists, nutritionists, sociologists, paranormal investigators — no one knows why he’s doing it,” said Sam Whitlock, a friend of the bunny. “It’s like he’s trying to tell us something, but what?”
According to Whitlock, they tried switching Hollis to parsnips last week to see if the message changed, but he did the same thing: only ate the middles.
They’re going to try celery next.
