An Indian farmer got the fright of his life recently when checking his soya bean crop - one of the plants was growing from the body of a live rat.

The extraordinary scene was captured on video by farmer Datar Singh in Ratlam District in Madhya Pradesh.

According to Singh, the plant must have somehow been sown into an open wound of the rodent and then germinated there.

When Singh told local residents what he'd found, they rushed back to the field and brought the remarkable rat to the village for others to see.

Incredibly, Singh says he sowed soya beans 40 days before discovering the rat, which means the injured rodent had survived all that time with the plant growing from its body.
