today i learned – mon 14th jan 2019

i recently watched a program about animals living in cities … this fact blew my mind 😱

#tdil rats have a whole lotta babies 😳 like, a whole load of babies 🙈

so, you’ve probably heard that rats have lots of little babies … but the actual amount might blow your mind a little 🤯

a fertile female rat is capable of having 10-12 small ones … every three or four weeks?! 😳 no wonder there are so many of them!

how mental is that!? just think how many that means over a year! it literally means a single rat could have 170-204 a year 🐀

what’s even more mental is they don’t have to be all that old before they start making babies … meaning the cycle of mad child birth starts pretty early for the lady rats! 🙈

anyway, just a short one today but i think it’s a pretty nuts one haha 😂

laters 👍🏻 #tdil
