Friday’s rodent is just the latest to gain viral fame after another rat caught dragging a salad bowl along subway tracks went viral last month and was dubbed ‘Arugula rat’. 

Other rats caught dragging slices of pizza, a bagel, a donut and coffee cup have also shared internet fame after they were filmed by shocked train passengers carrying their heavy haul.   

Egg McMuffin rat was praised on Twitter for his valiant efforts. 

‘He deserves it,’ one user wrote. 

‘Proving once again that subway rats are the size of otters!’ another account added. 

‘Lookit this hard workin mom making sure she bring home a treat for her kids on this Friday morning. Bless,’ one animal lover commented. 

‘Someone lost a whole breakfast sandwich. This is amazing,’ another fan added. 

Video of ‘Arugula rat’ first emerged in February, showing the creature painstakingly drag the salad bowl through subway tracks. 

‘Shout out to Salad Rat, stubbornly sticking w her New Years resolutions well into February,’ Sarah Peele tweeted as she posted the video on social media.

People took to Twitter praising the rodent’s perseverance to kick 2020 off in a healthy way.

‘Why can’t I be more like Salad Rat?’ one person tweeted along with a video of him eating a pizza slice.

Others voiced mock dismay that health fads have reached as far and wide as the rat’s humble abode of the city’s underground.

One Twitter user said: ‘God, even rats have to live up to unrealistic beauty standards.’

Another added that ‘Salad Rat just gentrified my neighborhood’.

The first rodent to take social media by storm for its larger than life appetite was Pizza Rat.

In September 2015, New Yorkers were amazed when footage emerged of it carrying an entire large slice of pizza down the steps of a subway station.

Despite the slice being bigger than it, the rat managed to drag it down several stairs before it was forced to admit defeat.
