We felt a bit queasy when we saw this!

But this huge tapeworm was actually living inside a woman before doctors removed it!

The tapeworm was 2.5m long!

Mrs Li, from Xiamen, in the southeast China's Fujian Province, had travelled to South East Asia two months ago.

But it was only weeks after that she started to feel unwell.

When she didn't feel any better, she eventually went to the hsopital, where doctors told her she'd pick up a giant tape worm, probably by eating infected, undercooked meat.

Well, she must be glad to get that out!
