Hero Rats

I'm sure most of you know about the rats that have been trained to detect landmines. What I love about them is how each reacts in a different way when they find their "prize". One liked to do a little dance over the mine.

Guma has pointed out that someone has composed this delightful song in celebration of the good they're doing for mankind. I'm not sure about their bravery though; the rats are too light to set off the mines and I'm sure they don't think of themselves as brave.

I wonder if I could tie them in somehow with MiDFur's theme this year of Heroes and Villains?

These aren't Rattus Norvegicus love, they're Gambian pouched rats. I think they're made of sterner stuff. ;)
