Matilda’s also a bona fide Instagram star (@aliencatmatilda), and is about to become famous the world over after being featured in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not’s latest book, Unlock The Weird.
And it lives up to the name. Other weird AF things in the book include this dude, who’s willingly allowing a sheep to poop in his mouth:

This portrait of Count Chocula made entirely out of M&Ms:
This dude, who decided to surf in a Hazmat suit because why not?
This hero, who’s able to karate chop wooden boards into oblivion despite suffering a chronic degenerative condition that causes tremors. Mr Miyagi would be PROUD:

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Unlock The Weird, will be released on Tuesday, 6th September.
