Why this giant rat photo may not be quite what it seems

This is the giant rat photo being shared and talked about on social media.

An electrician is holding it up for the camera after he found it dead in a bush on a housing estate in Hackney Downs, east London.

His colleague Tony Smith took the photo and he claims the rat was four feet long and was bigger than his cat and Jack Russell dog.

“We were going to stick it in the bin,” said Tony. “But before we did we thought we better take a picture… people won’t believe it’s real.”
