Seriously… I’m totally amazed. I’ve seen pigeons play ping pong (well more like real life pong). But this is amazing.

Could this mouse be following a scent trail?
That’s AWESOME. I need to train my guys to do this. Yuo can tell by the mouse pellets around on the table that the mouse has been training, probably following scent cues.
Yeah, but will it fetch a beer from the fridge?
pretty damn impressive even if no beer.
nah, using scent to accomplish that would be far more cumbersome than just basic training. that’s a really long behavioral chain, and all the transitions had to be rehearsed many times, but still it looks very straightforward to me. i trained a chicken to do a shorter version of that as part of a skill-building seminar, as have many people. doable in a basic way, yes. impressive anyway, as it is a big investment of time? yup.
I should of married this mouse , not my first husband ! What can I say, this mouse is smarter then ME!!!! ( is it a girl mouse? )
Is anyone else bothered by the hand pushing it in the right direction at 1:51?
It also stops and looks around a lot, for no obvious reason. Maybe it’s trying to find the scent again.
I’d love to see some of the training. How long did it take? What did the mouse get as a reward as it learned?
Lovely! It reminds me of Microcosmos… but more so. But how did that Spongebob villain get in there?
really cute and impressive~ i wonder how the trainer made it!
we’ll i am no scientist, physicist etc. I am a writer, a fantasy writer. I have studied different religions and i studied some facts about multiverse theory
