    Those are HUGE rats [​IMG]

    Very cool what they are doing with them though. Kinda sheds a new light on a species very much disliked.

    Happy they have found a solution [​IMG]

    Thanks for sharing JJ! I was a little confused at first about why they needed to find landmines in Tanzania, but it all made sense when they said they train there and then go to other countries.

    Those are some big rats! I swear the tails were two feet long! [​IMG]

    I've seen that video before, very interesting! [​IMG] Have you seen the one where they let a colony of domestic lab rats free in a controlled farm environment? Its neat, they revert back to their wild state very quickly and form their social structure, raise litters, do quite well for themselves. However, there was always a food, water and shelter source so the rats didn't really have to struggle for anything. It was still a neat video though.
