Rats in the news: More good news!

Several months ago I reported a new rat species, now I'm pleased to announce the rediscovery of a rat species after 112 years! Yes, the very cute greater dwarf cloud rat is back with us once again, after having been found by a team of Filipino and American scientists.

Lawrence Heaney, Curator of Mammals at the Field Museum and Project Leader, said, "The Philippines may have the greatest concentration of unique biological diversity, relative to its size, of any country in the world."
