See How Easily a Rat Can Wriggle Up Your Toilet | National Geographic

Август 20, 2015

A rat's ribs are hinged at the spine, enabling it to easily squeeze through the tightest spaces—like the pipes draining your toilet. And rats are great swimmers too; they can hold their breath for up to three minutes. See how quickly a rat can go from the city streets to your bathroom.

2:46 Casting a Fire Ant Colony with Molten Aluminum (Cast #043)

Casting a Fire Ant Colony with Molten Aluminum (Cast #043)

An incredible metal structure is made by pouring molten aluminum into a fire ant colony. The resulting cast is huge, weighing 17.9 lbs. and reaching a depth of 18 inches.

See detailed pictures of the resulting cast on the Anthill Art website at http://www.anthillart.com/castings/043/

If you like my videos, then subscribe to my channel here. I'm also on twitter and instagram.

These are the red imported fire ants (RIFA) which are harmful to the environment and their nests are exterminated by the millions in the United States using poisons, gasoline and fire, boiling water, and very rarely molten aluminum.

From Wikipedia: "Researchers have also been experimenting with extreme temperature change to exterminate RIFAs [red imported fire ants], such as injecting liquid nitrogen or pressurized steam into RIFA nests. Besides using hot steam, pouring boiling water into ant mounds has been found effective in exterminating their nests."

I did a casual survey and found that I have at least 120 of these colonies within an area of approximately three acres. http://www.anthillart.com/info/fire-ant-survey/

Why do you laugh when you’re tickled? Scientists at Humboldt University of Berlin are studying rats to try and solve the longstanding mystery. Given the right conditions, and enough back and belly tickling by a researcher, ratscan come to associate a researcher's cotton gloved hand with the sensation of being tickled. Tickling makes them “giggle, ” albeit in frequencies too high for human ears to hear. The rats develop a fondness for the human hands, chasing their scurrying fingers in circles. The scientists observe the rat ticklishness, and track how their brain processes the sensation, hoping to uncover clues about the laugh-inducing feeling.

3:51 Epic Rat Tricks

Epic Rat Tricks

"Awesome, Amazing Rat Tricks" Part 2!

Four of my five talented rats return performing their latest incredible tricks: Famous (Pink-Eyed Himalayan Top-Eared), Suki (Brown Agouti Berkshire Dumbo), Shadow (Black Mismarked Irish Top-Eared), and Raven (Black VariBerk Dumbo). All behaviours are taught with positive reinforcement and clicker training.

As you may notice, most of the tricks in this video are performed by Famous since the majority of the behaviours stem from retrieving, which is Famous' forte. She is the most advanced retriever in my mischief, although Suki is following closely in her pawprints.

I hope you all enjoy! — NanaBorderCollie :)

My rats are available for print ads, commercials, film, and other media work. If you are interested in using one or more of them for your project, please contact us: http://www.useyourclicker.com/contact-us.html
