They never cease to give you the creeps, do they? If there's one mammal i hate the most, besides the Panda, it's The Rat! No one like a rat, not even the Mafia. I fear these jumping, tail-dragging, overbreeding, disease bearers can take over the world from under our feet, if they wanted to.
What's so dreaded about them is that there's nothing that they can't do. They can chew through iron, they can burrow in anything, they can jump and fall from any height, they'll eat anything and still live, they could kill anything.
