You Won’t Believe What Amazing Tricks These Rats Can Do

Oh, rats! There are a ton of negative connotations about rats. After all, for years rats were named as the deadly culprit behind the bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death, that swept across Europe in the 14th century, resulting in anywhere from 75 to 200 million people losing their lives.

Recently, the much-despised rodent was exonerated and excused of any misdeeds by scientists. Today they are extremely popular pets, with half a million households claiming them as members of their families. Abby Roesner, though, well she takes it a whole other level. Using some sweet treats, she’s trained them to pick up after themselves and slam dunk like Michael Jordan. Definitely wait for it. It gets really awesome about a minute into the video.
