Join The Debate

Contender 1: Rat

The Rat is a medium-sized, long-tailed rodent, renowned for its adaptability to various environments. Common species include the larger brown rat (also known as the Norway rat) and the smaller black rat. Rats typically range from 9 to 11 inches in body length, with a tail length that's about the same. They have robust bodies, pointed snouts, and small, hairless ears. Rats are omnivores, with a diet that can include grains, fruits, vegetables, meat, and eggs, and they have a strong instinct to gnaw, which keeps their constantly growing teeth in check.

Fun Fact: Rats have excellent memories, and once they learn a navigational route, they won't forget it.

Contender 2: Weasel

The Weasel is a small, nimble mammal known for its long, slender body and short legs. They are part of the Mustelidae family, which includes otters, badgers, and wolverines. Covered in brown and white fur, they can adapt their coat to white in winter climates for camouflage. Despite their small size, weasels are fierce hunters, often taking on prey larger than themselves, including rabbits and rodents.

Fun Fact: Fascinatingly, a weasel can consume up to a third of its own body weight in food each day due to its fast metabolism.
