Where I live in Dehiwela I see dead rats a lot. Dead animals generally, but usually rats. They lie there fat for a while and either A) disappear or B) have their brains and guts picked away by crows and get run over multiple times till they look like a pancake. It’s pretty gross, but also kinda impressive. The rat bodies get emptied and flattened out like karmic handbags.
But the above isn’t a rat. I think it’s a lizard.
