Astonishing, how? Agility is a integral part of rodent behavior based on their environment and search for food. It doesn't surprise me in the least that a rodent can be prompted with food in stressless environments to perform 'tricks' on command the same way a dog will balance a treat on its nose or pull tremendous weights with hot dogs or chew toys in front of its face.

Did you see the indoor ladder work I posted on the other thread? Would that Mal still negotiate the ladder if the expectation of a tug reward was removed? What about the addition of stressors such as unstable footing(ladder swaying) or smoke/fire?
 
Agility exercises are not circus tricks.
