Usually the common name of a large muroid rodent will include the word 'rat', while a smaller muroid's name will include 'mouse'. The common terms rat and mouse are not taxonomically specific. There are 56 known species of rats in the world. Species and description The best-known rat species are the black rat (Rattus rattus) and the brown rat (Rattus norvegicus).
