Scientists Show How Big NYC Rats Can Get, And It’s Terrifying

New York City rats can be big, and because of some yucky research, we now know just how big.

Matthew Combs, a doctoral student at Fordham University, and his colleagues collected hundreds of rats for an ongoing study to determine how the creatures colonize. But in the process, they’ve given us a better idea of how the rodents can range in size.

No, New York City rats aren’t as big as cats (at least the well-fed domestic ones), as Gotham mythology would have it. However, the vermin are of a heft that will give you nightmares in a New York minute.

Combs recently showed off the biggest catch to The Huffington Post — a 675-gram (nearly 1 1/2 pounds) monster. It’s right here to disgust/terrify/fascinate you.

There’s good news for musophobia sufferers. If you’re concerned that there’s some mutation out there, resulting in rodents of a gargantuan size, well

“I do not think there are any 3-pound rats in the city,” Combs told The Huffington Post last week. “There seems to be a physiological limit to their size at about 2 pounds. I would need some physical evidence to believe they can get any larger.”

    2 million rats in NYC, is there that many people in the city? More than the size is the amount of them, which is unhealthy and disgusting!

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
