What is some information about the native bush rat of Australia?
The native bush rat is one of Australia's few native rodents, and quite different to the black rat, which is not native. The bush rat has an average body length of about 160 mm and a tail length of 150 mm. Its average weight is 160g. the colour of its fur varies from grey brown to reddish brown above and grey to light brown on its abdomen. The bush rat is found throughout most of the mainalnd of Australia. It can be found from sub-alpine climates down to coastal heathlands and scrubland. The bush rat is omnivorous, feeding on insects as well as leaves, fruit, seeds and fungi. This diet is an asset to the bush rat's survival because it means that, after a bushfire when much vegetation has been destroyed, the bush rat can still find fungi, which is one of the first new food sources to emerge. Bush rats are known to breed in Spring, Summer and Autumn, producing an average of five young in each litter. There may be several litters during any breeding season. The young are weaned at around 4 weeks old, and begin reproducing at around 4 months old.

Asked in Diet Soda
Is there rat poison in diet soda?
There is no way to say for certain, but the answer is likely no. There may be possible shared compounds for both rat poison and diet soda, but given the wide diversity of components used in rat poison (both as inactive and active ingredients), one would have to compare every single rat poison to every single diet soda. Furthermore, given that the FDA strictly controls what components can be used for human consumption, it undermines the notion that there is rat poison in diet soda. Hope that helped.
