A group of Rats is called a pack, swarm, or mischief.

Male Rats are called as Bucks; females are Does and bubs are pups or kittens.

It is possible that a Buck and a Doe can have over one million descendents in less than two years.

Rats are extremely clean pets and are among the most intelligent and curious.

There has not been a record case in the US of a human being catching rabies from a Rat bite (C.D.C.).

Rats can even nibble through just about anything including concrete and some metals.

Rats can swim for a long time without a break and can keep themselves floating for up to 3 days.

A Rat can regulate its temperature through its tail as well as use it for communication. Because of their long tail they also have a very acute sense of balance; therefore, they are excellent climbers.

The glands Rats have on the bottom of their feet leave a wet scent trail to mark their way back.

It is difficult to poison Rats because they eat a small portion of a new food; if it made them sick they will not eat the rest of the food.

Though generally considered nocturnal, most Rats are crepuscular, which means they are most active for a few hours around dusk and dawn, dividing the rest of the day between hours of lesser activity and sleeping.

Ancient Romans considered the Rat to be a sign of good luck.

In India; Karni Mata (a Hindu goddess of the Temple of Deshnoke), that’s also known as the Temple of Rats due to the 20,000 odd Rats that live in it. If someone kills a Rat, they must replace it with a gold Rat statue. Ganesha, the Hindu god of prosperity, new beginnings and luck rides around on a Rat!

The ancient Egyptians and Mayans both worshiped Rats.

The first of the 12 animal symbols in Chinese Zodiac is the Rat. Chinese Zodiac is a 12–year cycle; each year has its own animal symbol. The Rat represents a disciplined and an industrious person. It is the symbol of prosperity and shrewdness. The last Rat year was February 7th, 2008, to January 25th, 2009. The next one will be January 25th, 2020, to February 11th 2021.

Rats have poor vision. To compensate for this, a red or pink eyed Rat will often weave its head side to side to add “motion” to see better. They also don’t see in colour.

Rats normally prefer to have cage mates. It is possible to group Bucks or Does Rats together, though care should be taken when introducing a new Rat.

While it’s great to have both female and male Rats, be wary of letting them play together; Rats can complete the courting ritual and the whole romantic relationship in about two seconds.

Generally speaking, Bucks make better “lap” pets, preferring to sit and have their ears scratched by an attentive human friend whereas Does are very curious and love to explore or play games. Both genders make great companions.

Rats can and will eat chocolate.

Rats can also eat smaller pets. Rats are omnivores, and have enough predatory instinct left in them to consider birds, fish and even some smaller rodents as “snacks”.

Rats don’t have canine teeth.

Rats don’t have thumbs.

The oils in cedar and pine are toxic to Rats, and should not be used in their bedding materials.

The black plague in England and Europe killed more Rats then people!

Rat packs can go up to sixty strong! Because of their large numbers they can kill larger animals, including lambs, pigs and poultry.

The general rule is that Bucks are larger with a coarser coat and more laid–back disposition, than Does. Does are typically smaller and more active and playful.
