A rat was caught on camera in the Peruvian city of Huaraz lathering up and scrubbing itself down.
The bizarre video, reportedly taken in a bathroom sink, shows the rat standing up on its hind legs and washing his armpits using soapy water.
It has already racked up millions of views on social media after being posted on Reddit on Monday morning.
Electronic DJ Jose Correa,36, who claims he filmed the video in Huaraz City, Peru, said he was about to take a shower when he spotted the creature on Saturday morning.
Jose said: “He was just like a human, I’ve never seen anything like it.
“It went on for about 30 seconds, and then he ran off. I think he just wanted to give himself a good clean. I care a lot about animals so I wanted to protect his privacy.”
“I would never want to hurt him. So I just filmed him and let him go.”Follow @gorkhapost
