This video shows a "pocket piglet" .. a miniature pig as a baby.

Mouse Agility Course

May 14 2010 Published by under Brain & Behavior, Pets, Streaming videos, Teaching

tags: , , , , , ,

Training animals (and people) to do what you wish them to do is a vanishing art. However, there is a training method that is gaining popularity for teaching animals, ranging from rodents to whales, to perform certain behaviors on command. This training method is clicker training. Here is one example of clicker training with a common ordinary pet mouse, where it has been trained to follow an obstacle course that is truly epic in its size.
