The black rat is well known in east Africa were it came from a variety of countries brought by human traffic along the Indian Ocean coast. Three individuals were trapped, all in the village houses. They all correspond to the black rat morphology and their karyotype show some variability. Two of the three animals karyotyped display 2n = 38 and 39, and FNa = 58 and 60 respectively ( Fig. 18 View FIG ).
