Monster rat discovered in Indo jungle

Rats.

Ok. This may be old news to some, but I thought it was blogworthy anyway. A year ago, a previously unknown species of rat was discovered in the jungles of Indonesia. The rat was huge, at least five times the size of a common rat, and showed absolutely no fear of humans.

If the population of these rodents was ever to reach plague proportions, imagine the potential destruction (and death) that would ensue?

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post about man-eating rats in WW1: 'Killer Trench Rats'

That's the kind of thing that sparks some great story ideas. Giant, man-eating rats!
