The latest animal invasion reported from Florida has been launched by the dreaded Gambian pouched rat. Surely a big rodent is no problem if you have plenty of pythons on hand?
Giant, nine-pound Gambian rats invading Florida Keys | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News:
"Gambian pouched rats are the largest known breed of rats in the world. They can grow up to three feet in length and weigh as much as nine pounds. Wildlife officials fear that if the large-sized rodents make it to the Florida mainland, they could devastate local crops if they reach the Florida mainland.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been working with Florida officials to wipe out the rodents, and there are only an estimate few dozen at large, but they can reproduce quickly and do so only five months after being born. "
