Found dead at the edge of the road.
Probably killed by a cat
Found on my patio
Is this a Norway or ship rat?
This rat was caught in a small mammal Sherman trap set overnight. Rat was definitely black above and white below. The feet were also white. Pictured here in a 10 gallon tank.
The brown rat, common rat, street rat, sewer rat, Hanover rat, Norway rat, brown Norway rat, Norwegian rat, wharf rat (Rattus norvegicus), or hood rat is one of the best known and most common rats.
