I saw this rat crossing the road last evening on my way home from work. I know rats are quite common in big cities, such as Bangkok, but I am not sure I will ever get used to seeing these creatures scurry underfoot. Thankfully, they are not all that commonly seen on my travels in Bangkok. The one shown here was acting unusual, either being sick or hurt, was slowly walking across the busy access road to a nearby mall and got hit by a car. The mall security came by quickly and scooped it up and that is him holding the rat and not me! It was still quite alive when this photo was taken, yuck!
Let me know your experiences with rats when traveling.
