Now that you realize just how wonderful rats are, here are a few links that gives all the intresting information about rats:
BBC Best Link: CBBC Wild - Rats
An interactive children's guide to rats
BBC Best Link: Pet Factfile - Rats

Now to be fair and balanced: The news abour Rats is not all good. Consider the following Story:
Parents living in a north Belfast estate say they won't let their children out to play because the area is overrun with rats.
The residents say not enough is being done and they would like more help from the authorities. Eimear Flanagan reports.
