I can't believe the Jamaican Rice Rat is gone bros, this is so goddamn sad. Posted on October 24, 2022 by Anonymous I can't believe the Jamaican Rice Rat is gone bros, this is so goddamn sad.
Have extermination attempts made urban murids smarter and more resilient through darwinian pressures?

How the fuck does a RAT go extinct
rat kills other rat
Somebody from Alberta went to Jamaica on vacation
My guess is going to be Noway rats introduced in it’s ecosystem. Same way that the black native European rat is almost extinct
The black rat isn't native in Europe, no true rat species is.
dat be sad, mon
Jamaican me sad
>no, EVERYTHING must be replaced with generic domestic mice morphs, or - or else!
have a nice day.
I could have saved them...
Hold me bros...
>would regularly coat the country side in a foot of birdshit every time they migrated
Maybe we don't need to mourn every extinction.
Maybe pacific islanders should mourn them, given it was guano that first got the US horny for conquering them all.
I can't believe the Bramble Cay Melomys is gone bros, this is so goddamn sad.
What makes it special compared to every other rodent in the world?
You don't understand. They were very slightly different looking rats with obscure names.
Sounds like it can be easily fixed by selectively breeding for a look alike.
A look alike does not help. It’s not the same thing, it won’t act the same
What ways do they act different? Why didn't you mention the difference earlier when I asked what made them special?
nta but to answer: it's a rodent - all rodents act exactly the same with the tiniest bit of differences, such as specializing on a particular seed or hibernating longer. You can tell by looking at them - the rice rat isn't special and its niche can be occupied by any other mouse or rat introduced to the eco system. All are brown or grey, dig burrows or live in dead trees and eat seeds. Fags just keep seething because le ebin cute face and eyes
>all rodents act exactly the same with the tiniest bit of differences
>a tree chopping beaver acts the same as a house mouse
>a predatory rakali acts the same as a guinea pig
Alright, point out what makes the burrowing, wood chewing and territorial behaviour of a beaver different from a house mouse.
They're all different sized rats with special appetites.
You mean aside from the fact one is aquatic and builds dams?
Nobody here is talking about specialized beavers. We're talking about a common rat with a cute face.
All big cats, all bears, all canids, all elephants, all rhinos and all apes act exactly the same with the tiniest bit of differences so fuck them too
Fuck all mammals, especially rats
Actually, anon, that's not as far from truth, as you may think.
the picture in the OP isn't even a drawing of a Jamaican rice rat
theyre jamican your rice
