Rats in the news

Check out this adorable new rat they found in a 'lost' volcano in PNG. (If the volcano is lost, how did they find the rat?) He is 82cm, cute as a button and completely unafraid of humans. (Thanks to Porsupah for pointing this out.)

"He's like a little Puppy!"

LOL! That made me chuckle. He is very cute and dang if he's very calm!

Better hide all the power cords if you take him home.

The volcano's lost because IT REFUSED TO STOP TO ASK FOR DIRECTIONS :-)

Now to find the giant FERRETS! They're probably in the tunnels deep to the center of the earth. Had the explorers brought a ferret with them instead of following the "AS" graffiti, they'd have their shinies AND get out quickly and safely!

*laughs* You win the internet!

But what does 'following the "AS" graffiti' mean?

Arne Saknussemm (Arnie Saccnuson) first made the voyage to the center of the earth, etching "AS" wherever he went, including wrong turns and dangerous places.
