Mine detecting rats



Old news but watching the rats doing their thing never ceases to amaze me.

Visit the APOPO website for more information on this amazing work

Hurray for rats - have kept them as pets and they are remarkably intelligent - Spike would come when whistled. Tho I must say they are huge fellas.

Absolutely Sean

I agree Poons. I had two rats - Rancid and Cuddles. Rancid was such an affectionate little fellow, Cuddles was a little timid.

I would love to have rats even now but with four cats in the house, maybe not a good idea!

Luckily they are too light to trigger the mines

Pretty amazing I was going to ask the same thing as James.
