I got a huge kick out of this article :D

Here's the video linked to from the article where the rats are actually driving their ROV (Rat Operated Vehicle)!!


And the most awesome part about it to me is that the rats showed signs of being less stressed when they were spending time learning to drive!

If I was buried under a bunch of rubble, what a relief it would be to be discovered by giant hissing cockroaches. :shock:

I'd sooner be discovered by a rat driving a tiny rescue vehicle. Much cuter IMHO. It also reminds me of a book I read as a child about a mouse driving a tiny toy motorcycle.

That sounds familiar to me. Do you recall the name of the book? I believe I have read it but can't recall the name or any details about the book.

The name was "The Mouse and the Motorcycle". Here's the wiki page about it.
