Hero Rats: Giant rodents used to sniff out mines in Cambodia, in pictures

It's been a busy morning for Cletus, Meynard, Victoria and others of their furry band. Tiny noses and long whiskers twitching, they've scurried and sniffed their way across 775 square metres (8,300 square feet) of fields to eliminate a scourge that has killed thousands of Cambodians: land mines. Meet the Hero Rats: intelligent, surprisingly adorable creatures with some of the most sensitive noses in the animal kingdom. Picture: AP Photo/Denis Gray Explore Angkor Wat
