A Harrow healthy eater was left shocked this week when a bizarre creature appeared in her kitchen.
Trudy Braithwaite, of Harrow Weald Park, was carefully preparing a salad when she spotted this cucumber creature lurking amongst her vegetables.
The amorphous anomoly instantly sparked Ms Braithwaite's interest and, as a keen photographer, she captured these snaps of the beast.
She said: "When I saw this mark on the cucumber I wasn't sure if it resembled a giraffe or a dinosaur, what do you think?"
It is not known whether the vegetable vision has been preserved for posterity or has met an edible end, but Ms Braithwaite assured Harrow Observer readers it is genuine.
