Delicious too. The suckers in Bangkok are bigger than big domestic cats.
We have rats in SE Texas and Southern Louisiana that are bigger than some dogs -- easily 20 pounds. We used to shoot them for target practice in the marsh lands near Port Arthur (yes, we have one, too).
Some people actually eat them. We just threw the dead nutria rats in the water for the gators to eat. No laws protecting them. Even PETA doesn't care if you kill them, as far as I can tell.
I wonder if they are related to the big rats in Thailand.
