A skip rat is a beautiful creature that walks in an aloof fashion and wears a wispy mane of hair. A natural forager that is strangely drawn to shiny things and anything that would be considered worthless to normal people.
There is an example of a skip rat who is part of the Grangetown Massive his identity shall remain a secret.

One who burrows through the discarded debris in a skip, looking for items which may still be of value and/or useful to said skiprat. Much like a modern day Womble. Needless to say, such activity is viewed as "a bit pikey" by the average man on the street, who prefers his kitchen sink to come from a more reputable source.
