A degu is a small rodent like creature closely related to the chinchilla and guinea pig. Apparently, Japanese scientists from the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research have taught a degu how to use a rake to scoop in food. The video below demonstrates the rodent’s ability to utilize the miniature rake to grab food that has been placed just a few centimeters outside its cage. It took 60 days of training before the degu became a raking pro.
