A Swedish family suffered the shock of a lifetime when they discovered that the 'kitchen mouse' that had their cat running around in circles was in fact a gigantic monster rat.

The Bengtsson-Korsas family first noticed something was wrong when their cat Enok refused to enter the kitchen in their flat in Solna, north-west Stockholm.

The rat measured 15 inches, without its tail, and had made it into the family's flat by gnawing a tunnel between a wooden panel and concrete.

That is one scary Rat, hope they aren't evolving to be that big or you'll need to have a bobcat as a house cat.

I thought all Scandinavians were hardened fighting trolls. Disappointing...

Shame they had to kill it. I had a pet rat and he was pretty big but he was the sweetest animal ever. Rats are so intelligent too. I can't imagine one that size though. Would make an awesome pet. :) Much more amusing than my tubby little guinea pigs. ;)

Ninja turtles....Princess Bride...Pokemon....where do I go with this.

Ok here's one

So, I guess steroids was NIHM's secret

Stop being frightened. You only see a monster because they want you to see monsters everywhere. They've conditioned you to look for monsters in every shadow, every coat hung on every door. As long as we keep seeing monsters, we'll continue to need protection and that's how other people get to control our lives.

All Scandinavians are troll-hunters!!. We just hunt the occasional rat now and then when we run out of trolls..
But mostly it is just trolls on the menu. Like this>>  :yes: ;)

Love that movie. Made a point to show it to every person I know, even tying them down to chairs if I had to.

Lol, yeah it's pretty good actually. They made another movie about another Norwegian folklore tale, called
called Thale, about the Huldra.

which might explain why it wasn't afraid - all my pet rats that i've had were never afraid of any person however they always came snuggling up to me so perhaps they misunderstood the rats intentions.
