Magawa is a hero rat. OK, so he was awarded a medal, the first time for a rat. This is because Magawa is great at finding land mines.
A rat has for the first time won a British charity’s top civilian award for animal bravery, receiving the honor for searching out unexploded landmines in Cambodia
The award winning rodent has detected numerous explosive devices and has been awarded by a veterinary charity.
