Quote from: humbert on June 01, 2023, 06:28 AMRats in the Eiffel Tower? I didn't see any the day I visited it. Even so, the only reason they flourish in cities is because humans shower them with food. Like all living things, they go where food is. I also agree they're very misunderstood animals. They attack humans (or anything else) only when they feel threatened. Also, don't blame them for bubonic plague. It is the flea that lives on the rat (or any mammal) that was the vector for the bacteria that cause bubonic plague.Those rats are not at the summit of the Eiffel tower of course, they are in the nearby "champs de mars", (because there is rubbish) a large public greenspace located between the Eiffel Tower to the northwest and the École Militaire to the southeast.
