Bukit Batok recently became home to a colony of rats
Rottnest Island in Perth has attracted visitors from all over the world to pay a visit because of the free-roaming quokkas. But, why fork out an exorbitant fee for an air ticket? Here’s a free alternative within our own sunny island: rat watching.
Netizen Mr Ryan Keith Smith kindly volunteered the information on Facebook, when he uploaded a video of more than 30 rats scampering around a hill near Bukit Batok MRT.
While this might be an uncommon occurrence in Singapore, residents have had the privilege of seeing these furry little critters everyday.
X marks the spot – we’ve attached a map of where you can find these rats. You’re welcome.
Best time to watch them
Madam Lin, a 48-year-old technician said:
They are usually there after 5.30pm when I’m on my way home from work. I always see these rats when I wait for the train. I think something should be done.”
Still not convinced that this is a fun pastime? Check out the video below.
We have to thank the owners of Cuddles Cat Café for the dwindling number of cats by holding them captive – these rats may jolly well be eaten up by their cats.
