After weeks of intense scientific scrutiny, it can now be stated as a fact that New York rats love pizza. The love carrying it down stairs. They love sharing it with their friends. They love using it to inspire sexy/topical Halloween costumes for their basic brethren.

But subway rats can not subsist merely on crispy bread, gooey mozzarella cheese and the thrill of the hunt. In the video below—submitted by @JusBNYC—a rat can be seen branching out and trying a brand-new cuisine in true Time Out spirit.

We can not guarantee that it is in fact a burrito, but it definitely looks like one. At least one weighing less than 30 pounds.
