A gentleman identified on Twitter with the handle @aboladejohn_ has caused a massive stir on the social media platform after indicating that rats in his kitchen ate his saucepan.
According to the post sighted by Legit.ng on his page, John said this happened after he travelled for just a month and the rats were overly hungry for food.
Quick checks made by Legit.ng around the internet including Toropestny.com show that similar reports have been filed in the past and it has been established that rats are able to feed on metals.

Thousands of people have been commenting and reacting to the eye-popping post since it hit social media.
@francharles_sw6 hilariously said that the post by John is animal brutality and he would like to hear from animal rights activists on the matter.
@BamieCarter who could not believe his eyes upon seeing the post sought to get more clarification from John on the issue while another tweep came along with research to back John.
According to @Irunnia_, if the rats in John's room can eat metals, then sleeping there can cost a man many valuables.
In a previous report by Legit.ng, a mouse in Canada successfully completed its stay in a makeshift rehab centre after it was caught chomping on cannabis leaves.
The tiny rodent which was caught plucking leaves from a weed farmer’s backyard for two weeks one day lacked the ability to sustain the high and dropped on its back.
It is important to note that marijuana sale and production is legal in Canada. Colin Sulivan, the man who spotted the notorious animal in his farm, decided not to harm it or chase it and instead decided to rehabilitate it.
