Corpus Christi Rodent Removal Tip:

Black Rat's Biology
The black rat (also known as the roof rat or house rat) is easily one of the most popular and common types of rodents encountered all across the United States. This is why it's important to have some way to recognize it, should one ever cross your path, and that's why we're writing this. In this article, we'll talk a bit about the basics of the black rat's biology, so that you know what to expect should one of them decide to pay you a visit.

What does the black rat look like?
In spite of its name and perhaps surprisingly, the black rat is not actually pitch black. While some specimens do have a very dark, black-ish body-color, others have been noted to vary in shade even to a light brown, causing many people to mistake it for the Norway rat (also known as the brown rat). 

While the top color tends to be darker, the black rat's underside or belly is often much lighter, varying in color from beige to a medium brown. Rare specimens have even displayed a green-ish fur, so don't let the name fool you. A brown rat may well be classified as part of the black rat family. 

How big is the black rat?
rodent trapping On average, the adult black rat measures between 5 and 7.2 inches in body length alone (or 12.75 to 18.25 cm). And that's not counting the tail! If we also include the tail, which in itself measures anything from 5.9 to 8.7 inches (or 15 to 22 cm), then we're looking at a total length of roughly 15-16 inches (or over 40 cm). 

The black rat isn't too heavy, with most adult specimens weighing between 2.6 to 8.1 ounces (between 75 and 230 grams). 

What do black rats eat?
Speaking of weight, let's talk a bit about the black rat's diet. As it happens, the black rat is omnivorous, which makes it a real pest for any homeowner who has the misfortune of attracting it. Their hugely varied tastes might account for their survival as a species, as well as for their high population count.

On average, the black rat will eat anything from seeds, meats, vegetables, even to small vertebrates and invertebrates. In fact, black rats are considered a big problem for farmers, in particular, as they've been known to feast on the food left out for cows, pigs, and other animals. Although they will eat anything, they're thought to have a particular soft spot for nuts and seeds, much like a squirrel. 

While the black rat is willing to eat pretty much anything, that's not to say it eats a lot. Quite the contrary, the adult black rat only consumes about 15 grams of food a day (or just 0.5 oz.) and a measly 15 milligrams of water (0.5 fl. oz.). 

How can you tell the difference between the black rat and the brown rat?
As mentioned earlier, the brown rat is also a very common rodent across the U.S., and since the color isn't a good way to tell the two apart, we must look for other indicators. One notable difference between the black and the brown rat is that the black rat tends to be a little smaller than the brown one. 

Is the black rat dangerous?
While the black rat is famously a carrier of disease (bubonic plague, anyone?), it is not an aggressive rodent and is actually even kept as a pet sometimes. The biggest issue you have to worry about with a black rat is indeed the exposure to disease.
