How can you tell a baby mouse from a baby rat?
Baby rats are much bigger than mice. Baby rats look generally more like babies compared to an adult mouse. Rats have blunt noses, short tails, and big heads. They are a bit more "bean" shaped, while baby mice a kind of "pointy" at the nose. Baby rats are about the size of a big jelly bean at birth and without fur look like tiny pigs with big tails. Mice are more of a pinkish color, while rats are more gray.
