Bamboo rat

Bamboo rats live in burrows beneath bamboo, eating the root and effectively killing the plant. They are considered agricultural pests. A bamboo rat is about 18 inches in body length and weigh about 10 pounds. They are robust, with powerful limbs and strong claws and teeth, and small eyes and ears. The fur is short and coarse, slightly grey. Found in Khatun, Padmattiya, throughout Suwarnabumi, and Panau.
