NON ! Le Rat-blanc dont je veux vous parler n'etait pas un rat, mais un homme.
Pourquoi l'a-t-on appele ainsi? Sans doute parce que ses cheveux coupes tres courts etaient presque blancs. On dit que, lorsque les rats atteignent un grand age, leur pelage change de couleur et prend les teintes poivre et sel, puffs neigeuses, des barbes de vieillards. Je n'ai jamais vu de tels rats, mais on doit faire confiance a ceux qui les ont rencontres et observes.
Cependant, it ne faudrait pas prendre notre Rat-blanc - qui n'etait pas un rat - pour un vieil homme. D'ailleurs, on dit que, lorsqu'il etait encore jeune, it avait deja des cheveux courts et grin et qu'on l'appelait deja le Ratblanc. On raconte aussi que, de visage, it ressemblait un peu a un rat.
NO! The white Rat that I want to talk about was not a rat, but a man.
Why is it called so? Probably because his hair cut very short were almost white. It is said that when rats reach a great age, their coat changes color and takes pepper and salt, snow puffs, beards of elderly hues. I have never seen such rats, but must be trust those they meetings and observed.
However, it should not be our Rat-white - which was not a rat - for an old man. Indeed, it is said that when he was still young, it had hair short and grin already and it was called the Ratblanc already. It is also said that face, it looked like a little has a rat.
