To The Escape Zeppelin!: Hmm. If you started with 100 rats and they had nothing to eat but each other, how long would the last rat last?

THIS.... after a couple of months, unless they were in the hundred of thousands, they can't really reproduce that fast while feeding from each other.

I'd think that unless the stores were full, they'd resort to eating anything that had any food-value/organic... at some point.. well, unless they learn to fish or have birds landing on the deck and they are fast enough to catch these birds.

Unless... there's been several salvage crew that have ventured onto that boat, never to be heard from again and those salvage ships are also adrift now.

FTA -  prompting the Canadian government to send out another ship to drag her far out to sea and release her.

If you love her let her go, if she loves you she will come back.  Obviously, she did not love Canada

So it's just a row boat?

How are cannibal rats a bad thing? They have the taste for rat flesh, sounds like a great way to get rid of regular trash eating, home invading rats..then after therye all gone, they just eat eachother, no need to release snakes and gorillas.

TFA "One searcher, Belgian Pim de Rhoodes, told The Sun: "She is floating around out there somewhere."

Well, no shiate Sherlock, of course she is, I could have said that. And you're supposed to be a professional salvage hunter?!

To The Escape Zeppelin!: Hmm. If you started with 100 rats and they had nothing to eat but each other, how long would the last rat last?

From Wiki "a female producing up to five litters a year. The gestation period is only 21 days, and litters can number up to 14, although seven is common. They reach sexual maturity in about five weeks."

That's a lot of rats however you look at it.
