    Rat Swims 400 Meters Across Ocean

    Looking for love?


    Despite all their efforts, including fitting the rat with a radio collar, they couldn't catch the crafty creature.

    After 10 weeks on the island the rodent decided it had had enough. It swam 400 meters, the longest distance recorded for a rat across open sea, to another rat-free island where it was eventually captured in a trap baited with penguin meat several weeks later.
