But soon after the release of the video, scientists tried explain what we actually see on the screen:

  • This is not an ordinary rat, but a pacarana – a beast that resembles in appearance guinea pig and being its distant relative. Rodent quite large: body weight up to 15 kg, and length – up to 80 cm. Wool dark, with spots on the sides. But since the video is wet and in soap, its color is indistinguishable.
  • We see the pecarana already soaped up (and whether it is soap – big question). Since the animal is clean, it just cleans itself of dirt, in the quality of which it regards what applied to her coat. Just the movements really remind human.

By the way, scientists relate to such videos sharply negatively. They regard filming as ill-treatment animals.

What we see is not always true. Nonetheless rat from the video is really very funny.
