There is a group of African Giant Pouched Rats called the “HeroRATS” that have helped detect over 19,558 land mines and 6,068 unexploded ammunition, thanks to their highly developed and specially trained sense of smell.

When tested, Oreos were more addictive to lab rats than cocaine and heroin.

A rat can squeeze through holes or gaps the size of a quarter because its skull is not plated together, so it can change the shape of its head and squeeze through a very small opening. They are able to leap four feet laterally, can fall five floors without any injuries, and tread water for three days.

There are no rats in Alberta, Canada.
