Footage of a “huge rat” walking through a Sydney shopping center has shocked Australians at its size, prompting shoppers to tuck their pants into their socks.

When discussing where the world’s deadliest animals live, Australia is never long before a mention, making its residents’ violent reaction to the footage all the more shocking.

Some of them couldn’t believe the size of the rat.

The short clip emerged showing the large rodent scurrying through the middle of a Westfield shopping mall in Sydney.

It was shown making its way across the floor of the Parramatta mall’s food court in a video uploaded to Reddit on Monday.

The three-second clip showed the animal weaving under two rows of empty tables before disappearing behind a bench.

“Everyone bigger and it’s a bandicoot,” one person said in response to the footage.

“I won’t lie. I thought at first it was a mongoose with a deformed tail,” said another.

Others were not least surprised by what they saw and claimed to have witnessed similar scenes in the past.

“We had a Biggie in Westfield that I worked for. We called him Lowy. ‘ wrote one.

“When overcrowding and poor sanitation meet rats, they come out to play,” said another.

Someone who claimed to have worked at the center before said the video was nothing new.

One wrote: “I worked at the same level about 40 years ago and it was the same back then. Rats were consistently this size. With some the size of cats.

“The loading docks on this level are full of it due to the abundance of leftover food.”

Some argued that shoppers should expect to see at least some evidence of rodents in the city’s malls.

“Rodents are a big problem everywhere and can be found in every home and business. Nothing stops them, no amount of poison or traps. This is the world of rodents and unfortunately we only live in it,” said one.

However, the scene was enough to warn shoppers to “tuck your pants in your socks.”
