As the videos and photos of the giant rat went viral on the internet creating a buzz about the real-life like creature, a lady, identified as Evelin Lopez, came forward and claimed the ownership of the prop and said that she made the huge rat.

According to a report by New York Post, Lopez who claimed the ownership said that she made the huge rat from scratch many years ago and was hoping to use it as a prop for Halloween. However, she said that the prop got misplaced during the heavy rains in the Mexico City and now the workers have found it in the drain.

The New York Post report further quoted her as saying that ‘she never received help when she asked for assistance to search the drains. Now that she has the rat prop back, she is not sure if she will keep it’.

By looking at the Halloween prop made by Lopez, one cannot tell that it was not a real living creature, however, it turned out to be a decoration for the famous Halloween festival, that managed to end up in the narrow network of underground drains in the city.
