Beautiful mounted pouched rat for sale.

Species: Cricetomys gambianus

Origin: Africa

The pouched rat, also known as the Gambian pouched rat or African giant rat, is a fairly large rodent with a body length of 24 to 45 cm. It is characterised by a long tail of 35 to 50 cm. Fun fact: Thanks to their sense of smell and the ability to train these animals, in the 1990s a Flemish researcher came up with the idea of using Gambia pouched rats to detect landmines. On 24 September 2020, the trained Magawa, a rat that had found 39 landmines in Cambodia during its lifetime, received an award from a British charity. The rat was even honoured posthumously in Cambodia.
