When it hatches has a broad face and a long flat tail.

I saw the sentence above on Internet, but it makes no sense to me.

What is the subject of that sentence?

    Too Localised. This "sentence" is not in fact a sentence anyway. – FumbleFingers Feb 22 '13 at 15:56
  • I wouldn't call this localized. There is not specific jargon or regional dialect being used here. However, the sentence is ungrammatical. – Ken Bellows Feb 22 '13 at 16:44

I think they accidentally left out a word:

When it hatches, it has a broad face and a long flat tail.
