There was a ship that sailed to the island in 1918 and there were black rats on the ship and had left, they wonderd around and saw them and thought they were tasty and are them.
They were thought to be extinced from 1920 – 1930.
They were found on Lord Howe Island in 2003.
The Melbourne zoo is helping by getting them to mate so they they can have baby’s or get clones from their mum.
I don’t think so because they’re still trying to make thousands of them so then they can repopulate.
2 ¼ cups of plain flour

I think people shouldn’t eat bugs because if people keep eating bugs then the bug population will go extinked.
And bugs are just disgusting to eat I know because I ate one when I was little and I thought I was a jelly bean and it was gross.
