Hero Rats

@jitterbugjive

THEY’RE SO CUTE AND GOOD AND SMART AND HAVE JOB

I’ll always reblog hero rats!

this same species is also trained to identify tuberculosis in samples by smell, meaning they can test for TB at a rapid rate with a high accuracy 🙂

The organization that trains the rats is APOPO 

You can sponsor a rat and you will get adorable personalized emails telling you how well “your” rat is doing! I did this for my sister a few years ago and she’s still getting emails about Martok the HeroRat’s mine-clearing successes and called it the best gift ever.

There’s a Disney film could be made out of this.
