Agility Course No Match for This 'Rat-lete'

A rat expertly tackled an “agility course” created by its owner, with footage of the feat being shared to Instagram.

The rat’s athletic dash through, up, and over a number of obstacles was filmed by Esther Minic-Rosenthal.

Named Donut, the rat regularly features alongside another pet rodent named Olive on Minic-Rosenthal’s @shadow_the_rat_s Instagram account.

Sharing this footage on October 5, Minic-Rosenthal wrote, “These sorts of things are Donut’s absolute favorite training-wise,” adding that whenever she has to weave in and out of a course “she gets especially excited because they are her favorite obstacle by far”.

She told Storyful, “Donut is one of my eight current pet rats (all females), and she and her cagemates adore training time.” Credit: Esther Minic-Rosenthal via Storyful
