Watch: Horrifying Video Shows How Easily A Rat Can Crawl Up Your toilet

Here's a video that definitely will not help you sleep at night...

Love rats? No? No, we didn’t think so. Not many people do love rats. Some people have them as pets of course, and that’s cool, but generally, people are significantly less keen on sewer rats. Maybe because they live in the sewer and stuff.

Anyway, it’s nice to think that when you’re in your humble abode, wherever that may be, you’re safe from rats and the likes. But according to this video from National Geographic, that is most certainly not the case. They can hold their breath for three minutes, tread water for up to three days, and a few of the pesky things decide to use those skills to break into your house through the toilet.
