On April 13, a local farmer in Yichang, Hubei Province who dug up a fleece flower root was seen peddling in a street corner.
The root which looks just like a female human body was put up for sale at 1200 yuan ($185.5).
Passers-by showed great surprise at the 40cm and 4kg root but but no one was willing to make a purchase. Most of them took pictures and walked away.
In China, these fleece flower roots are usually for traditional Chinese medicine.
