What are rats?

Rats are rodents that belongs to the genus Rattus. Rats are common animals found around the world, and their populations can be found in almost every country on Earth.

Rats are considered pests because they destroy crops and spread diseases like typhus and bubonic plague by contaminating food sources with feces or urine; both which contain bacteria.

Rats tend to live in groups called colonies where they find shelter from predators. They also establish social hierarchies within the colony, with dominant individuals having priority access to food and other resources. Rats are known to be skilled at gnawing and burrowing, and are able to survive in a wide range of environments.

Are rats dangerous?

Rats are not aggressive or directly dangerous, but they can cause a lot of problems. They carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans and other animals through bites, scratches and contact with their feces and urine.
