Inspector Extrodinaire!

(pictured above is the rat we are guessing it would be and Uncle Joe says it looks like)

We got an email from Uncle Joe telling (K) the Great White Huntress (who set out the bait) had caught one BIG DEAD rat!

We asked him for pictures - doesn't have a camera. We asked him to describe, and here is the description:

By BIG I mean body 6-8 inches long and 6 inch tail. It was brown and gray. I am not sure about what you mean by fluffy tail. It did not have a normal rat tail. It was shorter then the body, but there was lots of hair and the end (about 1-1 1/2 inches) was bushy.

I wonder if there are any more living with it? K said - at least its a CUTE rat.

I put my rat comment in the rice, but I'm sure you've noticed that by now. The tail looks almost like a chinchilla. Wonder if it's some kind of rodent that is not a rat.

That's a rat? What breed?
