      I think it is amazing! This is a situation where both humans and other animals work together and benefit. The rats get yummy food while humans are protected from land mines. I suspect that many lives will be saved. Scientists have discovered many cool ways we can work with animals, but we have only begun to scratch the surface of what is possible.
      I hadn’t actually seen that article, but i looked it up when I read your question. Thank you for telling me about it. I didn’t realize I would learn such cool things from doing this.
