If you think rats are useless, think again. This documentary takes a look at Africa’s giant rats. They are the size of a cat.
And the best part is they can be trained to detect land-mines by smelling them. Rats are among the more intelligent animals out there.
These ones, in particular, are clever and they learn fast. Fun fact: their sense of smell is even better than that of a dog. And they have more stamina and cheaper to train.
The documentary follows Miss Marple, a rat born in a training lab. The documentary shows her first year of training before she is sent on her mission to Mozambique.
