While filming her G.U.Y. (Girl Under You) video in California, Lady Gaga encountered something more exotic than her outfits—a slow loris.
However, the cute little endangered creature from Asia didn’t seem to enjoy Gaga’s company so it ended up biting her!
“Lady Gaga wanted to use it in one scene, but it nipped her,” a source told the New York Post. “They put it back in its box and took it away in disgrace.''

Even though the source added that she was a “good sport” and “just laughed about it,” a bite from the poisonous mammal is nothing to laugh about.
Slow lorises “possess a very rare trait for a mammal—a toxic bite,” according to BBC. “Venomous organisms inflict poisonous wounds by actively biting, stinging or scratching their victims and injecting toxins into them.”
These toxic bites are supposedly so painful and agonizing that they can create extreme allergic reactions.
The 27-year-old singer should have opted for the baby kangaroo or the exotic goat, but the California State Parks Department vetoed the idea.

Instead, an insider tells Life and Style that all the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were part of the three-day video shoot, except for Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud.
The shooting began Feb.10 at San Simeon (aka Hearst Castle), a castle built by William Randolph Hearst in 1919, where Gaga and the crew reportedly took over 175 hotel rooms nearby.
As a thank you and act of kindness, Gaga donated $250,000 to the Hearst Castle Preservation Foundation after completing the shoot.
Being that Gaga used the castle’s iconic outdoor Neptune Pool and indoor Roman Pool for some scenes, we can only imagine this being similar to the Poker Face video.
By the sounds of it, 'G.U.Y.' will be similar to Gaga's 'Poker Face' video.
