  该话题参考文本

  The Chinese bamboo rat can be found in central and southern China. The bamboo rat varies in size, typically 15 to 25 cm long. They are all bulky, slow-moving rodents that live and forage in extensive burrow systems and rarely spend much time above ground. They feed on the underground part of plants, which is the reason why all the bamboo rats are regarded as agricultural pests, since they eat the roots of a range of crop plants, such as tapioca, a kind of sugar cane. But they are also recognized as valuable food animals. Chinese bamboo rats are sold in food markets in China.

  Recently a breeder became really popular, his videos spread like a virus online because he’s always catching the rats for food. He is the reason why I learned about the bamboo rat.
