A rat being trained by the Cambodian Mine Action Centre (CMAC) is pictured on an inactive landmine field in Siem Reap province July 9, 2015. Gambian pouched rats were deployed to Cambodia from Tanzania in April by a Belgian non-profit organization, APOPO, to help clear mines. They've been trained since they were 4 weeks old. Cambodia is still littered with landmines after emerging from decades of civil war, including the 1970s Khmer Rough "Killing Fields" genocide, leaving it with one of the world's highest disability rates. APOPO has used the rodents for mine-clearing projects in several countries, including Angola, Mozambique, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. Picture taken July 9, 2015.

Employees of the pest control department get a salary of 15,000 to 17,000 Indian Rupees ($294 to $333) while the contract labourers are paid 5 Indian rupees ($0.10) per rat they kill. The rat killers are expected to kill at least 30 rodents per night and hand over the carcasses to civic officials in the morning. If they fall short by even one rodent, they are expected to make it up the next night else they stand to lose a day's pay.

A man cooks rats for lunch in Khos Thom district in Kandal province, 65 km (40 miles) south of Phnom Penh near the Cambodia-Vietnam border, May 15, 2009. Rat meat was eaten in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s and for some time afterwards when little else was available, and the poor took to it last year when the price of other meat soared, but younger Cambodians turn their noses up. In Vietnam, in contrast, it is something of a delicacy. Picture taken May 15, 2009. To match Reuters Life! CAMBODIA-RATS/ REUTERS/Chor Sokunthea (CAMBODIA SOCIETY ANIMALS)

Stir-fried or grilled, Vietnamese can't seem to get enough of Cambodian rat meat, and the global influenza outbreak as well as recent heavy rains have proven a boon for both consumers and exporters.

Workers show a trap to catch some of the rats that were introduced to the Galapagos Islands years ago from the South American mainland and are threatening native species of plants and animals, on Santa Cruz island May 9, 2009. The common rat is just one of dozens of extraneous plant and animal species that the Ecuadorean government is working hard to eliminate, after the UNESCO confirmed them in 2007 as serious threats to the Islands' unique habitat and threatened to take the arquipelago off the World Heritage list.
