    Giant rat found. kitties beware!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8210000/8210394.stm

    A new species of giant rat has been discovered deep in the jungle of Papua New Guinea.
    The rat, which has no fear of humans, measures 82cm long, placing it among the largest species of rat known anywhere in the world.
    The creature, which has not yet been formally described, was discovered by an expedition team filming the BBC programme Lost Land of the Volcano.
    It is one of a number of exotic animals found by the expedition team.
    Like the other exotic species, the rat is believed to live within the Mount Bosavi crater, and nowhere else.

    i can't believe they could huddle around it and pull it by its tail and it just sits there so calmly, having never seen a human before. if an alien landed and grabbed me by my tail, i wouldn't be calmly rubbing my face.

    i wonder if it is a cat in rat's clothing.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I'd eat it.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I've seen larger in my house
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    they discovered a new species and that's all you've got?

    i heard Darwin's first words when he stepped onto the galapagos islands were "call that a tortois? my dog could take that!"

    That rat is utterly adorable! I love how it's just sitting there without a care in the world. What a sweetie.
