Evel Knievel mice. On skateboards. Really.


mouseringoffireYour eyes are not playing tricks on you. It’s the mouse that’s doing tricks. On a tiny skateboard. Watch the video for yourself.

Shane Willmott, an Australian, started by teaching the mice how to hang ten¬†twenty on surfboards. In the winter, what’s a surfer to do? Skateboard. So Willmott built a miniature skatepark in his backyard. “They love it,” he tells the Courier Mail. “Mice are built to surf and skate because their center of gravity is so low. When they do fall off, they want to get straight back on board.”

You can watch a short clip of the little dudes on YouTube.
