So-called Rat Kings are clumps of rodents snarled together by their tails. Despite looking like the creation of a deranged mind, they are said to occur naturally, when rats get tangled up and then bound by dirt, blood and feces. In folklore, rat kings are associated with various superstitions and were often seen as a bad omen, particularly associated with plagues. The largest well-known mummified “rat king”, was found in 1828 in a miller’s fireplace at Buchheim. It consisted of 32 rats.
