"A large and smelly type of rat."
Folio Bruti on the plague rat[src]

The Plague Rat is a species of rat, with a bite that can spread the plague. Plague rats have dark[1] or sickly greenish fur.[2] The Plague Rat is most resistant to the Fire-Making Spell,[2] the Severing Charm and the Freezing Spell,[1] but it is vulnerable to most other spells, particularly Red Sparks.[2]
