Revealed the secret viral video of a rat in the shower. And it’s not a rat
Researchers have solved the mystery of the viral video in which an animal called the rat, soaping himself in the shower. About it writes The Independent.
Users surprised by human habits of the animal, which stands on its hind legs and soaping the armpits, face, ears and barrel.
But, according to biologists at the University of Helsinki, the animal is not a rat, but not taking a shower.
It turned out that the video depicted animal is pacarana. This rodent species lives in tropical forests from Colombia to Western Bolivia. It is noted that the viral video was shot in Peru.
During the download an error has occurred.
According to biologists, pacarana not taking a shower and trying to get rid of the soap that she was not familiar. Thus, as explained by biologists, this animal is easy to catch, that’s why it was on video.
It is also reported that stand on their hind legs is normal behaviour for this rodent.
According to the researchers, it is unlikely that the animal suffers, as it behaves calmly.
