Excitement at the APOPO Center in Tanzania: One of the rats had offspring- a huge success for this special breed. It shows pretty fast, that one of the babies is really special. He is named Ronaldinho- after the famous football player.
In just a few weeks the little one learns how to find buried mines, as rats like Ronaldinho are able to smell TNT. There are still about 110 Million antipersonnel mines in the world which claim up to 20.000 lives a year. Every day the training gets harder for Ronaldinho and at the end he has to past the biggest test: at an open field, out of thousand different smells he has to find the TNT. Will he make it and be one of Africa's live saving rats at the end?
