  • baby MASTOMYS is born!

    Welcome to the world, MASTOMYS! It is celebration time in APOPO's rat kennels today for the birth of baby MASTOMYS and its two siblings. MASTOMYS belongs to the species Cricetomys gambianus, commonly known as the African giant pouched rat, which are often born in litters of 2 or 3. APOPO's breeding program ensures that prospective parents of our future heroes are carefully handpicked to deliver healthy, happy and high-quality rat babies.
