Types of Rat

In Wellesbourne, Warwickshire or anywhere in Britain, there are only two kinds of rat which you are ever likely to come across. They're the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat

In Wellesbourne, the rest of the United Kingdom and Continental Europe the commonest type of rat is the brown rat (common rat, street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) or sewer rat), this is the one you are most likely to discover in your home or garden. The brown rat (it can sometimes be grey) is normally 4-9 inches long (excluding the tail) and weighs 140-500g. It usually lives wherever people are living. Nowadays thought to have originated in Central Asia, it was at one time believed to have spread from Norway. Brown rats are omniverous (eat practically anything) though their favourite foods are grains and cereals, they have an acute sense of hearing but bad eyesight, the female rats attain sexual maturity in just five weeks and are able to have 5 litters every year (up to 14 young in each), they climb effectively and dig burrows.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

The black rat, roof rat or ship rat is also not a native of the United Kingdom, originating from India and Southeast Asia. Almost certainly traveling in spice shipments at the height of the Roman Empire, the black rat eventually spread through Continental Europe. The black rat was at one time prevalent in the British Isles but was largely ousted by the more dominant brown rat and is now quite uncommon. Growing to a length of five to seven inches, the black rat weighs just 75-230g. Black rats have a reputation for spreading numerous diseases, in particular salmonella, tularemia, listeria, trichinosis, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, Weil's disease and typhus.

Rat bites sometimes occur in houses where rats are being kept as pets, and pushing your hand into a rat's cage is definitely a manoeuvre to be wary of. Although they are not always dangerous, rat bites can turn nasty or even fatal if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), therefore they should be avoided if possible. If it isn't treated rapidly "rat bite fever" (RBF) can result in death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

  • Muscle Pain
  • Fever
  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Redness or Swelling

If you're unlucky enough to receive a rat bite, thoroughly wash the wound, put on some antibiotic cream, and cover the affected area with a bandage. Even if the wound does not seem that serious, you need to make an emergency appointment with your GP or go to the closest A&E unit. If you've not had a tetanus vaccination in the last 5 years, you should also ask for of these too.
