Seanan McGuire is a best-selling fiction author. But even though she writes science fiction and fantasy, she's going viral again for a Twitter story she told in 2015 that is, for one man's leg, unfortunately quite true.
Before we dig into this story of an alligator lizard getting deep into a place that will make you want to vomit, it's necessary to point out Seanan McGuire's own thoughts on the story when it first went viral. She took to Tumblr to answer everyone's question: "IS THAT STORY ABOUT ALLIGATOR LIZARDS REAL?"
Her answer: "Yes."
She also pointed out how annoying it was that news sites would share her story without context, so check out the end of this article for the full context, in her own words. Other than that—sorry Seanan—but this story is too good not to share.
