    I think that children of this giant rat moved north through the years and finally settled in the NYC subway system. We have a few monsters down there...:)

    A trully interesting find. Seems that it ended up being too big for its own good.

    Now if they had a fire swamp there the R.O.U.S. (rodents of unusual size) probably wouldn't have died out :p

    On Anquilla, the past home of the largest rodent - from about 125,000 years ago, had 6 inch teeth....I wonder how big these were....

    Maybe rats of that size wouldn't bother humans. We could always hope. They certainly would not be as mobile in a city!
