- an adult of the Leichhardt brood...
- Hi, same question as everyone else before I take some drastic action... We've had these in our yard in inner city Leichhardt for a few years and they were only ever active/seen at dusk climbing our peppercorn tree on the odd occassion. Recently they have moved under our wood pile and have an extensive burrow system from there to our compost heap. They have started eating our dogs dry food also. They appear to have small roundish ears and a tail shorter than their body, white underbellies and feet. As you can see by the photos they are used to us now and will forage in daylight if they can smell food is about. The adults seem to have a slight reddish tinge about the head. Are they the common black/brown rat or part of the native bush rat regeneration program? I'll throw a few pics up. Cheers!
