After looking at this animal’s scary images, we are now wondering what sort of food this monster rat had been eating to be this huge? Or is that really a rat? What caused its death?

Holding the rat was Tony Smith’s friend James Green. Tony, who took the picture, said that it’s the biggest rat he has ever seen in his entire life.

“I’ve got a cat and a Jack Russell and it was bigger than both of those. I’d say it was about four foot.”

For real, “four foot.” It must be scary if there are more of them around.
