Rats: In the News!A few weeks ago I posted about Gambian Rats and just recently they've been featured in a news article.
Giant rats smell out buried landmines
The concept of training rats to sniff out landmines isn't a new one, but I love this article because it has a great photo of a beautiful Gambian being lead on a leash. Once again proof that rats aren't pests; they're intelligent, useful creatures.
And so darn cute!

Travelin' RatI created this blog with the purpose of 'seeking out rats across the globe', whether that be my own back courtyard, or the subways of Chicago, or anything in between. Lately I haven't gotten up to much traveling, so I have to settle for rat hunting via internet, and unfortunately the pickings have been fairly slim.
Until today, when I randomly stumbled across the blog of Ramblin' Woody Rat. Woody Rat is an adorable stuffed rat that travels across the world, posting photos and accounts of his travels. It's a fun and entertaining blog, and the little rat is absolutely adorable!
It really gives the term 'seeking out rats across the globe' a whole new meaning.
