Description: You better like Rats, because Rats were around long before humans figured out how to wipe their own ass, and scientists are genetically engineering Rats to survive virtually any future apocalyptic scenario. Never fear! Just in case you don't like small rodents, there will quite likely be exterminator Giant Rats to gas them into submission.
