love this giant 2013


Hey guys, check out my new rat! This is Nisay, and she’s a giant Africa pouched rat that I’ve “adopted” through APOPO! Apopo trains these “HeroRats” to sniff out the land mines that litter various African countries. The rats are small enough they can sniff out the mines without getting hurt, so people safely detonate the mines and the rats get a treat! They also can sniff out TB, and can test as many human sputum samples by sniffing as it would take a human lab tech to do in 3 days!

They have a program where you can “adopt” a rat, meaning sponsor their food and training, and they send you photos and updates. My dad adopted me on for Christmas, as it was the only thing I asked for. There was some mixup so this is my first update, but I’m so pleased! Nisay is a female, with distinguishing dark marks on her face. She’s three feet and three pounds and described as “cheeky and enthusiastic”. She’s one of the HeroRats who has been shipped overseas to do work elsewhere; in her case, she’s doing work in Cambodia in a place called Siem Reap. I think her paper said she was born in 2013; they live longer than regular ratties.

I love giant pouched rats and hope to own one one day, but they’re next to impossible to get in the USA. For now though, I can enjoy a surrogate ownership through Nisay while she does good!

Hyung took really good care of me but after being separated for almost a month to promote, I miss you very very much, I want to see you soon so we can practice together.”
