The Mysterious Case of the Plantar Tubercles

Could this be a case of mistaken identity?


Yes, that rodent silhouette in the upper corner is a rat (more or less), and not a mouse. Eek, a "wild rat", unexpectedly was brought into my life in June 2012. At first, I didn't even realize she was a rat, let alone understand what magnificent pets rats can be. Originally all grey, she was initially identified as a black or roof rat (Rattus rattus). However, as she became an adult, the classification of a black rat fit less and less.
