Rats are infamous for having very long, hairless tails. For some rats, their tails are as long as their body.
Rats have very large teeth and, in general, they are larger than mice. Their teeth constantly grow and they are forced to chew on things to keep them from growing out of control. As such, rats chew on just about anything, including wood, drywall and other substances found around a home.
Rat droppings are often found in and around a home with a rat infestation and they tend to be about 20mm long and capsule-shaped.
