With the invasive rat invasion across the islands of the world, destroying all those native species, I have to wonder what will happen in a few thousand years.
Rats, man, have taken over paradise. Give it a few hundred years, even, and different islands and rats will diverge into a wide variety of species, large and small, bitter and kind, and all sorts of things in between.
The wallaby rats of Bongaloosa… The elephant rats of Easter Island… The flying Komodo rats… The amphibious rats of Yap…
Rats, man. Give it a few hundred years.
