Roof rats (Rattus rattus), also known as black rats, are small, typically dark gray rodents. The easiest way to quickly distinguish a roof rat from a Norway rat, other than the smaller size, is that a roof rat’s tail is very long. If you were to pull the tail back over the body, the roof rat’s tail would extend past its snout. Like other rodents, roof rats will leave dark rub or grease marks in areas that they frequent.
