Rats are found all over the world. They are longtailed rodents that are considered pests wherever they exist. Rats thrive in urban environments, where they can easily feed off the leftover food and waste of the community.

While wild rats are seen as vicious and diseasecarrying beasts, tame rats are quite docile and friendly.
