Rats to Sniff Mines

Yup, you are reading this correctly. These rodents are being trained to help sniff out landmines.  This is a baby African pouch rat. He smells out a dummy landmine in Tanzania. Once these rats are trained they will be able to clear a 200 square foot minefield in about an hour and a half. This is much faster than a human and so far they have helped to re-open over 2 million square miles of land in Mozambique.

Here Liger Liger Liger

This picture shows 2 ligers, one is big brother and one is a newborn cub. This is a hybrid cat that is half tiger and half lion. This is the biggest hybrid cat and they are located at the SAFARI wildlife reserve in the US. 

The reserve states the best thing about Ligers is their ability to socialize. They love to be touched and play with their lion fathers. They are very interactive. The liger also has a love of water and enjoys playing in the water whenever they can.
