A man in the southern Norwegian city of Fredrikstad managed to trap an unusually large rat in his cellar, reports local newspaper Fredriksstad Blad. The rat’s size was linked to its diet in the cellar.
The trapper, Vidar Pedersen, is an active body-builder and stored protein powder in the cellar, to increase his strength.
The rat reportedly had gnawed into the boxes of protein powder and proceeded to eat it, around 12 kilos (around 26 pounds) in total.
Pedersen attributes the protein powder diet to the size of the rat, which measured at least 50 centimeters (20 inches, nearly two feet) from its nose to its tail.
