Common Brown Rat (Rattus norvegicus)

By teocali
A Common Brown Rat (Rattus norvegicus) - I know people hate and despise them and that they spread disease, but they can look rather appealing too. Near full-frame capture taken through glass with flash.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's Blue Tit upload - much appreciated as always Smile

They do get a very bad press but that does not change the fact they are a nice looking animal, its unfortunate for them that they have such a bad reputation, this is a nice close up of this one. - gary

I suppose they are cute in a sort of a way, Sylvia: certainly a rather good shot you've managed.

I haven't a problem with rats, so long as they don't come anywhere near the house and our Simba takes care of that GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
