Rats

Rats are being trained in post-conflict countries like Cambodia, Mozambique, and Angola to detect landmines. Rats are too light to set off the mines and have the ability to smell the explosive compounds extremely well. Rats are faster than electronic minesweepers and can clear an area 3 times faster, with higher accuracy.
