Rats The Size Of Cats ?! The Gambian rat has been found in the grassy swamp areas of Florida Keys. Thought to have been introduced to this area in 2009 by a rat enthusiast who let his collection go wild. They can weigh up to 9lb, that’s the weight of some new born babies. Wow they’re huge !! They have become very popular in locating mines and are sent to work in the mine fields as their sense of smell is fantastic. However they have very poor sight, they are becoming a sought after pet.
