"You wouldn't want one for a pet. Their teeth are made for eating solid rock. Put an Ussal cart or a chute, or even a Knowledge Tower, between them and dinner and they'll eat that too. "

Stone Rats are vicious Rahi rodents.

History

The Stone Rat species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.

Stone Rats were known to live in Skakdi fortresses on Zakaz[DW, Ch. 3] and under Metru Nui, especially the poorly-maintained portions of the Archives.

A swarm of stone rats once plagued Ta-Metru, driven from their nest by an attacking Nui-Rama.[BA6]

About 1,001 years ago, after the defeat of the Morbuzakh, the Toa Metru encountered a swarm of Stone Rats in the Fikou Web. While the Toa Metru crossed a chasm traversed by a cable, the swarm of Stone Rats rose from below and began to gnaw upon the cable. To rescue the others, Toa Vakama weakened the fraying cable with a Kanoka disk, causing both himself and the Stone Rats to plummet to the ground. Vakama was quickly saved by Toa Matau, and the Toa continued their journey.[BA3]

Following the Great Cataclysm, a large number of Stone Rats migrated to the island of Mata Nui, along with the Matoran. The creatures began to make their homes in caves and other similar areas, where they lived for 1,000 years. During his adventures, Takua was once trapped in one of these caves, and his friend Jaller had to rescue him.[citation needed]

When the Toa Nuva intentionally unleashed the Bohrok, the Stone Rats migrated back to Metru Nui.

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Stone Rats left the Matoran Universe and immigrated to Spherus Magna.[citation needed]

Abilities and Traits

Stone Rats have extremely sharp teeth that can shred even through solid rock. Voracious creatures, Stone Rats will eat any obstacle between them and their food, regardless of the material. The Stone Rats are distant relatives of the Kinloka species and are also hunted by Longfangs for food. Stone Rats are known to live in swarms; in such a concentration, they can be a dangerous force.[citation needed]
