JAPAN – A curious new trend is soaring across Japan.

Usually you’ll see books filled with cute little kittens, ducklings, and puppies.

But, according to The Wall Street Journal, hamster butts are what Japan’s books are being filled with.

The Wall Street Journal reports nearly 40,000 copies of hamster’s hineys have been sold, with a third one on the way.
