Transgender woman spends Sh 6M to turn herself into a DRAGON (photos)
Eva has had her ears cut off and horns put in her head
In 1997, Medusa, from Bruni, Texas, was living as a man, named Richard Hernandez, and operating as a vice president for one of America’s leading banks.
But an HIV diagnosis sent Eva's life in a completely different direction and she vowed ‘not to die a human’.
Leaving the corporate world behind, Eva began morphing into the reptilian form she’d always longed to have.
She believes that, after being abandoned by her parents at the age of five, she was ‘born again’ under the care of the western diamondback rattlesnake.
The now 56-year-old began her transformation with a series of scale tattoos before later having her nose re-shaped, ears removed and the whites of her eyes permanently stained green – all costing an estimated $60,000 (Sh 6m).
But with a further $40,000 (Sh 4m) worth of modifications still planned, Eva opened up about her ‘trans-speciesism’ in a hope to break down the boundaries for others like her.
Eva said: “For me, my transformation is the greatest journey of my life.
“There are profound reasons and deep meanings about my transformation and why I’m doing it.
“I have two mothers: One is my original birth mother and my second birth is to my reptilian parents, which are the rattlesnakes.
“I hope that my story will help other people – not only those who have gone through hard times, but also people who have lost hope.
