Forget Godzilla this monster is real.
A Swedish family recoiled in terror when their trap did not immediately kill a 16-inch rat scurrying around their kitchen.
The gargantuan rodent, metal clasped tightly around its neck, powered through the pain and scampered off behind Signe Bengtsson-Korsas' kitchen cabinets, The Sun reported.
"It was a monster, the worst thing I have ever seen," she told the British tabloid.
Her husband, Erik, added, "The rat was so big it did not die."
Eventually the squeaking stopped.
The nearly invincible beast was found lifeless behind their dishwasher.
"In the end we managed to find it dead, it had slowly strangled," Erik said. "Then we felt a bit sorry for it."
Erik Bengtsson-Korsas could not believe the size of the rat that got into their home outside Stockholm. Justus Bengtsson-Korsås via Facebook Erik Bengtsson-Korsas could not believe the size of the rat that got into his family's home outside Stockholm.
The family told The Sun that pest control workers showed up a few hours earlier to set up the deadly trap at their home in Solna, a suburb of Stockholm.
The rat had already wreaked havoc on their home. At one point the rodent managed to gnaw through a pipe and flood the kitchen.
They initially thought a mouse made it in when they saw their pet cat Enoch standing guard in the pantry and noticed his predatory instincts rising up.
Instead, they found the gigantic rat. It darted out and startled Bengtsson-Korsas when she went to empty the trash. She and her cat ran for the hills.
"We were all terrified, I thought it was going to bite my toes," her son Justus told The Sun.
The humans say they think that the rat got into the household through a ventilation pipe, which has since been blocked off with brick.
Was its name Ben?
They sure that isn’t an opossum?
The cat I had as a child would make very short work of that guy.
Well, the rodent is really big, but all those electrical cords plugged into that power strip look like a fire watiting to happen to me.
No this was his cousin, Willard!
Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don’t think they exist.

And this is why the “Land of the Vikings” is not long for this world....
Bunch of European-ized panty-wastes!
Growing up on the farm my brothers cleaned up an old grainery, they went in with shovels in the morning to dig up it’s dirt floor...
By evening we had a pile of dead rats about 3ft tall....
Not a Sh!t was given for all those dead ass rats.
We never had a rat problem in that grainery again... I think they managed to get them all!
Range of Virginia Opossum. As far as I know, there are no opossums in Sweden.
I have the perfect test for you!
I was being sarcastic about the opossum quip, LOL
Too bad they didn’t have that cat that was terrorizing some other family!
“blocked off with a brick”
That gave me a chuckle. Rots of ruck.
I noticed the UFO first - Unidentified Fabulous Objects
My wife was watching over my shoulder. Dang right I commented on the UFO first.
It could be a nutria/coypu..Without seeing the front feet, it's hard to tell.
