A CHINESE farmer has become the talk of his village after unearthing a potato shaped like a tortoise in his field. Ma Xiuling, 64, found a tortoise-shaped potato while digging up vegetables in his field near Longshan village in Yanji, north-east Chinas Liaoning Province. The unusual potato, which is about the size of a two-week-old puppy, has four similarly sized round 'feet, a 'body and a 'head. And if that didnt make it lifelike enough, there are even two small indentations on the head, resembling a pair of eyes.Xiuling said the potato originally also had a tail, but it snapped off when he dug it out of the ground. The potato has gained plenty of local attention, with neighbours in his village coming to see the peculiar tuberous crop. Metro'Neighbours all feel surprised when seeing the weird-shaped potato, Mr Xiuling said.
