Rattus Norvegicus (Dead)

Alongside Homo Sapiens, the most successful mammal on the planet; the common brown rat.

One of the largest muroids, with a head to tail length of up to 55 cm, weighing up to 500g. Thought to have originated in northern China, this rodent has now spread to all continents except Antartica. With rare exceptions, the brown rat lives wherever humans live, particularly in urban areas.
