Rat Identification
The black rat is between 16–24cm in length, with a tail longer than the head and body. It grows to between 150–200g in weight. They have a pointed nose, large ears and a slender body.
Black rats can be found in coastal towns and in many urban environments across Australia.

Black rats are incredibly agile and very good climbers. Their preferred food is moist fruits. Black Rats will eat around 15g of food a day and drink 15ml.

Black rats produce 5–10 young per litter, and have between 3–6 litters a year. The gestation period is about 3 weeks. It only takes between 12–16 weeks from birth for them to reach sexual maturity.
