8:07 am
extraordinary sense of smell allows them to search for food buried deep underground it worked with land mines to the key is to train the a rats to associate the discovery of t.n.t. with food and that's not difficult because everyone knows how intelligent rats. the really hard part is making sure that the rat doesn't make any mistakes that could be fatal and not just for the rat. it's these old regular rats that's clear from the way they eat these giant rats have special pouches in their cheeks to still food just like hamsters so this particular animal is on the cusp between being a rat in a house that perhaps that's why they're just a little bit cuter. i guess i should add to another really great benefit of our species of rats is that

there are really curious which lab rats are curious as well but they are very social in terms of they're really willing to work with people. sometimes will develop that relationship with you but i don't think they develop it quite as readily. meanwhile isaac has grown he's now four weeks old i'm training can begin like all children isaac schooling starts with a kindergarten. although it is a camera he hopes little rats to feel comfortable around people. to see that because. he's the. norm we teach the. truth.
