Description

A rather cautious rat, that took a lot of enticing with tit-bits in the entrance way and on the trigger plate, and ended up getting caught just at the edge of the trigger plate.

The animated sequence shows the rat taking 20 minutes to foray into the trap entranceway before it finally decides to risk going in further. (5 sequences joined together with intervening absences omitted)

According to Steve De C. Cook's book, NZ Coastal Invertebrates, the species I think this is isn't found south of East Cape, so I would love a second opinion. There were many washed up on the beach.
