I’m Riley!

The brown rat can be found almost everywhere in the UK and they are particularly common around cities.

 

I love learning new things.

Rats have great memories and can remember a route in a maze. They have also been used to detect landmines and diagnose diseases such as tuberculosis.


I’ll eat just about anything!

Brown rats will eat pretty much anything, from human food waste to small mammals.

 

I love my Family.

Brown rats live in colonies and are one of the few rodents that maintains a social structure complete with leaders, assistant leaders, outcasts and rebels.

 

I’m fun and love to play!

Rats make sounds similar to laughter when they are happy. And, like humans, rats can be ticklish.
