Landmine-Detecting Rat Retires After Years Of Service

  • After five years of service detecting landmines in Cambodia, an African giant pouched rat named Magawa is retiring.
  • During his career, Magawa detected 71 landmines as well as dozens of other unexploded items.
  • Magawa is an award-winning rat; last year, he became the first rat to win the UK’s top animal bravery award.
  • He’s still on the job for a few more weeks, “mentoring” the new rat recruits that will take his place.
