Remember when breakfast cereal used to put prizes in the box? They were never this terrifying.

A German man received a rude awakening one recent morning when he poured himself a bowl of cornflakes and found a mummified bat staring back at him from his bowl.

Metro is reporting that the man thought it might have been a Halloween prize in the box, but quickly realized that it was a real life mummified bat.

He then reported it to health officials, who are investigating the incident.

It is believed that the hungry bat may have flown in for a corn flake treat and ended up getting trapped in the plastic packaging.

Food safety official Jorg Sturmer said, “I have never seen anything like it. This really is an unusual case.”
