Wordless Wednesday: Pouched Rat having a treat


This is a video recording of me introducing a new snack to the African Giant Pouched Rats (Cricetomys ansorgei) - fresh pumpkin seeds.

This fellow really seems to like it. I'm super impressed by this species dexterity. His handling of this seeds shows that.

This is just a snap shot of an experiment I am presently writing. Fingers crossed that the manuscript will be complete by the end of the week. As always I appreciate your support.
