Rat Attack!: Nova
The title of this fascinating nature special about an on-again, off-again infestation of rats in the Indian state of Mizoram is no misnomer. Every 48 years, during what the locals call mautam, the rodents swarm, invade homes and attack crops. The reason behind the phenomenon has to do with a crop of native bamboo that blooms only twice a century, setting off a boom in the black rat population and producing an overwhelming surplus.
