    Sure, they can drag an entire slice of pizza down a set of subway steps using just their teeth. But when it comes to the outdoor elements, rats are just no match for the snow. 

    An NBC 4 New York viewer captured video of a large rat struggling to burrow its way through massive snowdrifts during the blizzard in Central Park Saturday.

    It was clearly going nowhere fast.

    The rodent tried to hop, paw and crawl its way through the snow as viewer Lisa Sharkey's dog, a cavalier King Charles spaniel, watched intently.

    It eventually made its way, but stopped frequently and turned in confusion at times.
