Giant Rat

Dire Rat, Common, no. 30 of 72, Giants of Legend

“Why should I be afraid of the sewers? There’s nothing down there but rats.” 
     Ernst Mayr, deceased

A giant rat is substantially larger than its other rodent. Aggressive and cunning, giant rats have been known to hunt in packs of 5-10 (1d6+4) to overcome much larger foes. Giant rats grow to three feet in length (six feet if the tail is measured) and spread a disease called “Filth Fever” through their bite.
