Rats are the main prey of sharks, which have been found eating them for thousands of years.

But these days, most of the food they eat comes from humans.

In this episode, we’ll explore the story of how these animals were accidentally introduced to humans in the 1800s, and how they have since spread across the world.

We’ll also hear about the story behind the name, and explore what makes them tick.
