About the Cotton Rat

Routinely grey in color with a few black hairs mixed in, Cotton Rats bodies measure 13.3 to 21.3 with an additional 7.6 to 16.5cms length in the tail. Frequently agricultural pests, these rats can do incredible damage to row crops, but will also feast on pet food left unattended in the open.
