But what is really startling are the very rare discoveries of rat kings---when rats become stuck in small places, their tales become tangled and they cannot escape. There are rat kings that have been discovered and preserved.
Rat kings, and the idea of a king rat are usually signs of bad omens in stories and legends. They have mostly been found in medieval houses in Germany, but others have been found outside of Europe. Pretty creepy, huh?
