Rat kings are phenomena said to arise when a number of rats become  intertwined at their tails, which become stuck together with blood,  dirt, ice, excrement or simply knotted. The animals reputedly grow  together while joined at the tails. The numbers of rats that are joined  together can vary, but naturally rat kings formed from a larger number  of rats are rarer. The phenomenon is particularly associated with  Germany, where the majority of instances have been reported.  Historically, rat kings were seen as an extremely bad omen, particularly  associated with plagues.More about Rat Kings.
