  Six AGR and ten grasscutter were used in this study. The large size of the olfactory bulb of the AGR makes them better sniffers of landmines and tuberculosis patient than the grasscutter if trained. The large size of the cerebrum of both animals makes them good animals for studies on their neurobiology.

  Thirty-five adults clinically healthy African giant rats captured around Zaria were purchased for examination between April to August, 2006. Each rat was euthanized with chloroform and postmortem examination was conducted on them. Subsequently, a liver specimen was obtained from each rat and fixed in 10% buffered neutral formalin. They were later processed, sectioned at 5 m thickness, stained with Haematoxylin and Eosin (H and E) technique and the slides were examined using the light microscope (Olympus®). Photomicrographs were taken with the Deluxe® photomicroscope (x40 0bjective). Twenty-five (71.4%) of the rats had normal livers grossly, while 10 (28.6%) exhibited gross changes. There were whitish and grayish patchy areas of necrosis in 5 (14.3%), fatty change in 2 (5.7%) and slight congestion in 3 (8.6%) livers from the rats. Light microscopy revealed ova of Capillaria hepatica within the parenchyma of the livers from 2 (5.7%) of the rats which had hepatic necrosis grossly. The ova were predominantly immature, while few matured ones had the typical bipolar nature of ova of Capillaria sp. The preponderance of these ova distorted the parenchyma and compressed the hepatic cells in the affected areas. Mild fatty degeneration was observed in close association to the ova and elsewhere within unaffected portions of the hepatic parenchyma. The consumption of African giant rats may lead to human cases of capillariosis if not properly cooked or roasted.

  Mitracarpus scaber is a local herb traditionally used for the treatment of eczema and other skin disorders. Methanolic extracts made from leaves, stem, fluorescence and roots were prepared and dried. Graded concentrations of the 4 separate plant parts were prepared in nutrient broth contained in universal bottles at 10, 7, 5, 3 and 2 g mL 1. Standard chloramphenicol (Norbrook Laboratories Ltd., London) was similarly prepared and used as known antibiotic. An isolate of Dermatophilus congolensis was obtained and inoculated in each of the graded broth media and incubated at 37C, microaerophilically, for 24 h. Two replications were made with blank controls and growth of Dermatophilus congolensis was observed and recorded. The results obtained showed that leaves, fluorescence and root extracts were inhibitory at concentration of 3 g mL 1 while, stem extract was at 5 g mL 1. Chloramphenicol was inhibitory at 2 g mL 1. It is recommended that research be carried out on this plant to further elucidate its antimicrobial potentials.
