Bait completely gone
Photo 2,3: Tail less than or equal to head-body length
Photo 2,3,5: Underside of tail pale compared to topside
Photo 4: White tipped, grey belly fur
Photo 6: Pale topside of hind feet
Photo 9: Very hairy tail
Photo 10: Hairs extending beyond edge of ear (I think this refers to hairs inside the ear)
I also note the the fur is soft, not wiry as sometimes described, and as with black rats there are black guard hairs in the fur (photo 8).
Norway and ship rats caught in two traps side by side on section boundary - shame I didn't keep the kiore caught earlier! Gumboot is a Size 5.
Caught in snap trap in yard next to compost pile.
Mojada porque estaba nadando.
