VIRAL: Photo of Giant Rat Making Rounds Online

Giant Rat

A netizen posted a photo on Facebook of a man holding a giant rat. He holds up the huge rodent with a pair of tongs.

From the looks of it, the rat appears to be the size of a cat.

It is quite a freaky photo and you may even be puzzled how the man can still smile while holding the rat.

We are not sure where the photo has been taken or if it has been photoshopped or if it’s just a matter of perspective, but it has been creating a huge buzz online.

In the past, The Daily Mail posted a story of giant rats seen in UK. According to that post, pest control authorities have captured rats the size of rabbits in England and Ireland.
