This very much depends on the gender, and social situation.. Were these rats living together? If not, there is a high chance of the advantaged rat attacking, as this is highly likely to happen regardless of whether or not that rat is injured.. Two Male rats are far more aggressive towards each oth…er if they have never met, as both are fighting to be the dominant . Two females may fight too, regardless if one or the other is injured. Females tend to be more active and jumpy, while males tend to be lazier, but more aggressive. ( Full Answer )

Rats will eat almost anything. ------------------------------------------------ Answer Namely my pet iguana who I had for 7 seven years who was still a baby and had a perfectly unthreatened life until I ado…pted my rats. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED my rats but when cleaning out my rats tank and letting it roam around it was able to pry open my iguanas tank top and even quicker to biting it in the neck and carrying it off. Let this be a warning to people who love rodents and other smaller pets because unfortunately this is just something I had to find out the hard way.I have found dead rats in traps that had been partially eaten by other rats while they were still alive in the trap. how could a iguana be a baby when you've had it for 7 years?

The average female Norway rat has four to six litters per year and may successfully wean 20 or more offspring annually. The average number of litters a female roof rat has per year depends on many factors, but generally is three to five with from five to eight young in each litter.

Take it to the vet right away! Respiratory infections are very dangerous for rodents, because they're so tiny. A vet will prescribe antibiotics and answer any questions you might have. If your sick rat has trouble keeping warm, you can try putting a hot water bottle in with it, or put a heating p…ad under half of the cage. (Leave half unheated, so it can leave the warm area if it needs to.) Gatorade or Pedialyte is a good for dehydrated rat, and kitten or puppy replacement milk can help it get nutrition if it has trouble eating solid food. ( Full Answer )

There are different classes of rat poison. One common type is the warfarin-class of poisons, which work to thin the blood. After consuming enough of the poison, the rat loses the ability to clot its blood and it basically bleeds to death. Another type is a neurologic poison, which causes the rat …to have seizures and die.\n \n The poison thins their blood, causing them to bleed through mucus membranes. The rat's blood pressure is lowered. The rat's blood gets to the point that the blood is too thin to carry oxygen and they die. The poison (most likely arsenic) in the rat killer poisons the rat, therefore killing the rat because of the poison. . The actual effect of most rat poisons on a rat is to cause the animal's body to bleed to death internally, due to the anti-coagulants in the poison. ( Full Answer )
No, but they will definitely be happier if they are. My adult rat was about two years old when we first got her a cage mate. She was more active and gentler than ever before. If you only have one rat and don't handle it often, it becomes antisocial and very aggressive. If you don't play with it very… often, get it a cage mate. A: Yes! Most good breeders will NOT sell you a single rat unless they know you and know you have other rats. Rats are extremely social creatures and they need companionship of their own species. They are under a lot of stress when there aren't any other rats around and single rats are more likely to become sick. If you have a single rat, you should be willing to put in a minimum of 4 hours per day with them. Rats are the third most intelligent animal after humans and Chimps (the only species other than those two to exhibit problem solving capabilities) and they get lonely and depressed. A : it really does not matter because it would be happier with a mate to play with but sometimes they could kill one another but it does not usally happen. It is entirely up to you because ethier way your rat will be just as happy as long as it is loved and well looked after. A: Yes, they get lonely even if you spend every minute with them. Rats are extremely social and they need other rats to keep as companions. Single rats can become sick. I would, if i were you it's much more fun and they get lonely easily, my rats hate to be separated for more than 10 minutes, they go and sulk in the corner or run round in circles sniffing and making funny noises.

because the person who discoved rats named them rats There's no authoritative history for the origin of the word 'rat'; it's one of the Indo-European (or PIE: Proto-Indo-European) words, with similar versions in several languages. One suggestion: I think it came from this: One of the def…initions of 'rat': A round and tapering mass of hair, or similar material, used by women to support the puffs and rolls of their natural hair. That word was used years and years and years ago 1700's (?) for a mass of hair, I'm guessing a rat looked like that to people when it was running past, just a mass of hair. Another suggestion: Or perhaps it was the other way around: the rat in the sense of hair-enhancement took its name from the hairy rat. ( Full Answer )
Rats are omnivorous creatures. Often if there is a dead rat near them, they will eat it to gain protein and other nutrients. In addition, they may also bite the ears of other rats in the same cage as them, though this is more of a stereotypical behaviour. Rat pups will also be eaten if there are for…eign smells on them, so if your rat has babies please do not pick them up! If you absolutely need to pick them up, do so by scooping up the bedding around them, not by touching them directly! A1: Not unless they're cannibals. A2: Sometimes two or more rats who don't get along may kill and/or eat each other, and if a female rat who just gave birth is stressed or disturbed while or just after giving birth she may abandon or eat her babies. A3: Technically, the house rat is a scavenger and mostly thrive on rubbish as well as dead creatures so it is possible for rats to eat other rats especially if they are dead. A4: One sure answer though, is that a rat can eat even a creature of the same kind or from the same phylum (Rodentia) because a colleague of mine had a hamster who died due to rat bites.

Make sure that your rats are not just play-fighting. Many rats do this. They may scuffle and squeak from time to time, this is perfectly normal. They are establishing a pecking order. Only if you find bites or blood on either of the rats should you separate them. Also, ensure that you are i…ntroducing your rats properly to each other. If you just chuck one into the other's cage, of course they will feel that their space has been invaded and they may fight. However if you slowly introduce them beginning on neutral territory such as a bathtub, you will have much greater success. ( Full Answer )

There is no such thing as a "pack rat." It is a sterio type given to rats because of there burrowing nature. but roof rats and norways can mate. ANS2: Pack rats do, indeed, exist (see link) but they are not related closely enough to Norway rats to produce fertile offspring if they were to mate.
Unless you are a mammal with a tail, has poor eyesight, two ears at the top of your head, a keen sense of smell, and somehow knew how to type, then YES, you ARE a rat.
Neither. Like mice and rats, they are rodents, but they are only distantly related to mice and rats.
Well not only one person uses rats for expirements. Tons of people do. Although I do know one story where rats were injected with crap from cocaine in their head and it changed their survival instincts. some coke was placed on an electric pad and they would shock themselves to death trying to get th…e coke. I know that really doesnt answer the question but it gives you alittle insight on a paticular experiment where rats where shocked. ( Full Answer )
Rats communicate in various ways, including scent marking using urine. So female rats will attract males. Also, a good home for rats will attract more rats.. Many people will say that if there are rats, there are seldom mice in the same place - which is true to a point - rats will eat mice.
Norway rats tend to be 'chubbier' and have shorter snouts and tails. Roof rats are sleeker and have much longer tails.

Bite, lick, scratch, scare, endear, etc... About the same number ofthings dogs can do to you. Mine rarely bite and when they do it'sjust a little nibble. They never try and hurt you unless you scarethem or challenge them or something like that.

The reason why rat poison works so well is because rats cannot vomit, and such the poison cannot be expelled. My suggestion, if it is a pet rat, don't let it get near rat poison in the first place and make sure you have a vet who is willing to care for a rat, and give them a call. A little more... … Modern anticoagulant rodenticides interfere with the body recycling Vitamin K, so once basic resources are exhausted, clotting stops. Vitamin K works in rat and human overdoses to reactivate clotting. I am not able to find any data that show dosage or administration techniques for a poisoned rat, so you'll have to work with your vet on this. Note also the website reference. ( Full Answer )

Yes, when rats are born they each come attached to their own placenta, which the mother then licks off and eats. There is one placenta for each baby rat, but if the mother rat doesn't expel the placenta it can rot inside her and make her sick even to the point of death. Baby rats are connected to th…eir placenta by their umbilical cord. Sources: I breed and research rats=) ( Full Answer )

Yes, rats can poop. Every living thing that is not a plant can poop. Was this a totally random question? That's funny. I just typed in poop because I was bored. If this is your part of your homework, or other important thing, hope it helped :)
This depends on what type of rat you are referring to. Wild rats spend most of their time in sewers, their primary function is to reproduce, which is pretty much the same for most animals, they don't really 'do' anything specific. However, domestic or 'fancy' rats are genetically different and are b…red as pets, i personally find that rats make excellent pets and are friendly, inquisitive and most intelligent. I wouldn't recommend a wild rat as a pet though, they can be very dangerous as they have a nasty bite and living in the sewers makes them prone to infect you. Hope that helped a bit? :) ( Full Answer )
In The Secret of NIMH, the rats are very intelligent as a result of human interference and experimentation. When they escaped, they were no longer satisfied to live the simple lives of rats. They wanted electricity, clothes to keep them warm, medicine, and education. Their reasons for wanting the ra…dio weren't discussed in the book or movie if I recall correctly, but as their intelligence has increased, it's likely they wanted it to have the luxury of music, to study humans, or to take it apart so they could learn how they worked, or build something new from it.

There are lots of different rat traps available to catch them. Or you can go to a pet store and buy one if that is the kind you want!
No rat is really "the nicest". it all depends on how much you play with them and toys in their cage. If you are looking to buy one, my personnal favorite is the fancy rat.
Well that depends on how good they are eating, drinking, and what they are living in. If they are eating crumbs or scraps on the floor or in corners and drinking from a dripping faucet or a leak in a fish tank and you have a large or medium sized house and/or yard then there could be hundreds and ev…en thousands. My suggestion on catching them is to be to use mouse traps or if you want them to live, then you can order a humane no kill mouse and rat trap from Amazon. They are 13-14 dollars if you get the small ones for mice and rats. The others are expensive. Hope I Helped! :) ( Full Answer )
The poison Will get into their blood and clot it up that causes internal bleeding of the body witch causes the rat to explode.
If you bought a healthy rat and keep it indoors as a pet, you can'tget anything from it. It's the same as owning a cat or a dog. I wasbitten by my pet rats a few times, came into contact with rat fecesand urine, and breathed dust with particles in it, and I havesuffered zero illness. Certain specie…s of wild rats and other rodents (muskrats,mice, etc) may transmit different diseases. Please notethat these diseases are generally transmitted through breathingin/consuming anything with rat feces or urine in it, or coming intocontact with (including being bitten or scratched by) infectedanimals (including carcasses or fleas and ticks that have beeninfected). Again, these are wild rodents, not the rodentsyou see in pet stores or buy from breeders. You cannotspontaneously develop these diseases from animals that are notcarrying the bacteria or viruses, as well. As with all wild animals, just don't touch them or go near them,and you should be fine. Diseases listed are pertinent to rats, and rats or other rodents.No mouse-specific or other rodent-specific diseases are listed. Different diseases are: Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (virus, mostof North and South America), Rat-Bite fever (bacteria, worldwide),Leptospirosis (bacteria, worldwide), Lassa Fever (virus, WestAfrica -- the only one that can be spread through direct humancontact), Plague (bacteria, Western US, South America, Africa,Asia), Salmonellosis (bacteria, worldwide), Tularemia (bacteria,worldwide), South America Arenaviruses (virus, South America), andHemorraghic Fever with Renal Syndrome (virus, primarily in easternAsia, Russia, Korea, Scandinavia, western Europe, and the Balkans).
