(Not a Rat) He's Scrubbing Himself Clean

posted by John Gatlin - 

This video has been all over the Internet.  A guy in Peru posted video of a rat taking a shower in his sink.  The rat's lathered-up, standing, and scrubbing itself like a human.   

But there are a couple problems.  First, it's not a rat . . . it's a pacarana, a different type of rodent from South America.  And more importantly, some animal experts think it might be "showering" because the soap is bothering him or even PAINFUL.
