Africa: Man Trains Rats To Sniff Explosives

A man trains African giant pouched rat at APOPO’s training facility in Morogoro, Tanzania. APOPO trains the rats to detect tuberculosis and landmines at its facility. The trained rats sniff for explosive and so are able to detect the presence of landmines far faster than conventional methods which involve metal detection. [Photos: AFP]
