Terrifying: The boy pulled this 10-centre beast from his ear

A teenager in the United States who woke up in excruciating pain found the source of the agony was a live 4-inch centipede.

Arkansas teen Grant Botti (14) said he awoke and felt something moving around in his ear so he decided to pull it out. 

However, he was probably half-wishing he hadn't because what he found was wholly terrifying. 

The 14-year-old found himself a 10-centimetre long insect which would turn out to be a centipede. 

Grant's mother bagged the insect and quickly brought her son to Saline Memorial Hospital as he was still in considerable pain. 

A doctor had a look at him before treating some abrasions and releasing him. 

Doctors at the hospital told the family they have seen people come in with all kinds of things in their ears but that this was the first time they'd found a centipede.
