    Wow! At dog agility contests, the dog is constantly prompted by the trainer, but thsi mouse seems to have done it all alone (almost). Maybe trained to a scent trail?

    Scent trail indeed. That’s how they do it for movies anyhow. They rub a spot with their finger to remove some of the scent and the result is the mouse will stop a moment.

    I blogged about Martialis here: An Astonishing New Ant
