More Ratty News

Another report from the New Internationalist says that the NGO Apopo has successfully cleared 11million square metres of land containing 13000 landmines in Mozambique using the fantastic giant pouched rats, which have been trained to sniff out landmines.

The rats are also working in Angola and could soon be working in Cambodia.

This is fantastic because the rats are so intelligent and light weight that they can work without getting injured.
