Melbourne Man Has Trained Water Rats To Come When He Calls

Meet Martin, the man who’s trained the wild Water-Rats of St Kilda to come out when he calls their name.

If you’ve ever taken a stroll down St Kilda Pier you may have noticed the Penguins that live in the rocks of the breakwater. This same spot is also home to the native Australian Water-Rat; who Martin, a German retiree has befriended.

This kind old fella has been going to the end of St Kilda pier almost everyday for the last 20 years and has formed a special connection with the Rats.
