sorry about the photo quality, taking a picture in total darkness I found to be quite difficult, I had the tape measure there but you can’t see the marks so I’ll give you the measurements, the lone Rat was 14″, the others were, top Rat 15″, middle Rat 14″, bottom Rat 16″, pretty big for Wood Rats, this species has a hairless tail unlike most Wood / Pack Rats, and these seem bigger than most, maybe because they get fed a lot from the compost scraps…. I did get a Roof Rat before that measured 17″, it had the longest tail I had ever seen.
Thanks Guys
