Discover the exciting world of the rat, from inner-city homes to remote rural riverbanks. You can follow the rat's life cycle, from the first few hours of a new-born pup to finding a mate. You can find out where rats live, what they eat, and how to identify their footprints. You can learn about the threats facing rats today and why they can become pests. This book includes an animal map, locator map, life cycle summary and 'unusual fact' boxes.
