"A mouse never entrusts his life to only one hole." - Plautus

About rodents behaviour :

  • Rats can empathise and care for injured and sick members of their group. In one experiment, they free their trapped companions even when presented with food instead.

  • Instead of sound, smell seems to play an important role in most rabbits communication systems. They have glands all over their body and rub them on objects to convey information like sex, age, reproductive status, territory ownership…

  • Rats are ticklish and make laughing-like sounds when they are happy.
