Doctors were left baffled and down-right flabbergasted when they discovered a ladybird in the intestines of a patient in the US.

The 59-year-old man attended hospital for a colonoscopy in which a small camera is inserted in the rectum for a closer inspection of the bowels, reports IFL Science.

While it may be common to discover an irritation, perhaps even a wound or a lesion of some sort, finding a ladybird is certainly a unique discovery.

The routine practice is carried out to check what's causing bowel symptom such as bleeding from the bottom or constipation.

The incredible find was made in 2019 and included as a case study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology entitled "An Unusual Finding of a Ladybug on Screening Colonoscopy" by Francis E. Dailey.
