Monster Rodent Found in Mainland China
Posted on February 24th, 2009 in Mainland China | 3 Comments » |
The Chinese did it again. This time they caught a giant rat with one-inch-long teeth in the southern Chinese province of Fujian. The rat weighted somewhere around 6 pounds (2.73 kgs), had one-inch-long teeth, and 12-inch long tail. About three times the size of a Chinaman’s penis. Sorry Chinese folks I had to drop in that punch line.
The person who caught the monster is only known as Mr Xian. “I did it, I caught a rat the size of a cat!” he shouted out after the big catch. According the Chinese newspapers Mr Xian is believed to still be in possession of the rat. He told local Chinese newspapers that he thought the rat might be a valuable specimen, or a rare species, and had to gather up his courage before picking it up by the scruff of its neck.
The specimen of the rat has yet to be identified. The local forestry unit in the city identified the creature as a bamboo rat from the initial photographs, but said that it would need to examine the rat more closely before making a final identification.
