Despite the fact that neither of the two varieties of rat at present living in Great Britain are natives of these islands, they've clearly made themselves at home. The brown rat is especially common (hence its name) while the black rat just isn't so much nowadays. Both varieties escaped from Asia and arrived in Great Britain on boats.
