Rodents of Unusual Size?


They exist! Several new species have been discovered in New Guinea, including a giant rat and a pygmy possum.

I must admit, though, the rat in the photo doesn't look that much bigger than the ones I've spotted lurking around the streets of Boston.

I'm sure Buttercup and Wesley are glad to know it wasn't all in their head. :)

I think it's a normal sized rat w/a tiny man. But that's just me.
