Yesterday when walking up our drive we were greeted by some rat parts.  A head, neatly nipped off at the neck; a tail, again neatly nipped off at the base; and a few cm of some parts of the alimentary canal.  The parts were more or less under a tree so could have been dropped therefrom.

Does anyone know if this selective style of eating is diagnostic of a particular sort of predator?
