Former banker Richard Hernandez, 58, from Los Angeles, has spent $75,000 to become a genderless mythical creature.
Hernandez has undergone 20 body modification procedures and identifies himself as a trans-species reptile.
Over the past two decades, Richard has undergone castration, ear removal, nose removal, split tongue and 18 horn implants. The creature asks to be called "it," and has taken the name of Dragon Lady on social media.
Now the man looks like a reptilian grandma.
