Cool Nest - Inside a Barrel Cactus


Inside a Barrel Cactus


This nest was actually inside a barrel cactus. The cactus was laying on its' side. The rat dug a tunnel underneath and then burrowed into the cactus and made a cozy home - impressive!

I have seen rats burrow into the sides of desert spoons and palm trees also. These types of nests are not typical and harder to spot than the traditional pack rat nest.
