Black Rat, Ship Rat (Rattus rattus)
The roof rat looks similar to a Norway rat but is smaller in size. Roof rats are also known as black rats, and they’re one of the most common types of rats in the state. These rodents get their name from their tendency to live in high places, such as trees, roofs, and attics. They’re excellent climbers and can squeeze through tiny spaces. Roof rats are brown or black, and they have long tails that are often lighter in color than their bodies.
