    According to at least some accounts, the largest rat species in the world is a recently-discovered species found in 2007 on the side of a volcano in New Guinea. The length of one rat captured was 82 cm from nose to tail-tip. Though the idea of stumbling across a giant rat in the forests of New Guinea may not sound appealing to some, the new species a soft, almost fuzzy look that makes it in some ways more visually appealing than the common European rats. This remarkable discovery is a reminder of how much of this planet’s biological makeup still remains to be explored.
