A Mischief of Rats

Rats are very social creatures that live in close, hierarchical communities. They groom each other and sleep and play together. They are ticklish and even laugh when experiencing joy. There are 56 known species that range in size from five inches to three feet, and can weigh over five pounds. These rodents are often considered dirty, but actually clean themselves constantly. Rats help humans in many ways, as they are smart and very trainable; they’re even used to sniff out landmines. Their teeth never stop growing, so to wear them down they must chew on things. Rats don’t sweat but control their body temperature by expanding and contracting the blood vessels in their tails.
