Here is what I learned about RATS today:

Rats can go longer without water than camels.

Rats do not like cheese, because they are lactose intolerant.

Rats have bellybuttons! (bellybutton is such a cute word!)

In the Karni Mata temple in India, rats are worshipped. They are believed to be the reincarnations of the followers of the Goddess Durga (the divine mother in Hindu culture). Priests maintain the temple and provide the rats with food.

I know…you have to see the last one to believe it so check out this video:
