Rats are commonly used in medical and scienti c research because of their intelligence and capacity for learning. Controlled studies have found that rats are actively prosocial. They demonstrate altruistic behavior to other rats in experiments, often attempting to rescue other rats who are in pain. This particular rat was named “Happiness” by its human companions. She is a Diva or Goddess , deified after death for her capacity to love.
