This dapper little fellow has a job!  He is a professional land-mine detective!



Trained African Giant Pouched Rats are being used to detect landmines in Africa!  They are too light to set off mines themselves, and can search an area much faster than a human with a metal detector could.  Other rats are trained to detect tuberculosis--  their keen sense of smell can process a batch of samples much faster and more cheaply than a technician in a lab could.  They can also be trained to detect bombs, ammunition, or animal trophies.

Awesome photo...   neat animal.  I didn't know about these little guys.  Thanks.


That pic didn't do justice to the size of the fox's ears in relation to the rest of the animal....

We had one of these little guys come to visit while I was living in a trailer on a railroad siding 40 miles south of Churchill MB. in January. I know you shouldn't but I did offer him the odd table scrap which he got so he would take from my hand. Then we moved 80 miles south and I'm sure it was the same guy who showed up a couple of days later. I think he followed us down the track.

I would like to have that impact on people in my life.  Some have said that I did it, but I need to do more.

Sure as hell is frightening. Next thing you they'll want us to cuddle up to robots! Now that's a form of global warming we also must stave off.
