The Rat is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.
The rat has the highest populations among the eastern regions, with pockets sprinkled through the central areas and a larger concentration between Owanjila and Strawberry in Big Valley. Rats are also prevalent in the cave right north of the Elysian Pool and waterfall. Rats are very scarce in the Grizzlies and almost nonexistent in New Austin, with the exception of Armadillo.
- Unlike with other killed or fished mangy and poisoned animals, the pelts and carcasses of killed mangy rats are considered Perfect (the best loot ranking for hunted animals).
