It's fair to say I don't like rats. It's fair to say I hate rats. They scare the bejesus out of me. The way they move so quick, their beady eyes, pointy teeth, thick tail ... errrggh.

I read the Sydney Morning Herald online and today I came across this article

They've discovered a rat which is "about five times the size of a typical city rat," and oh how lucky, has "no fear of humans".

Let me just say, I don't plan to travel to the Foja mountains rainforest in eastern Papua province anytime soon!

You'll probably be terrified by this too - also has no fear of humans!
