Why are rat tails scaly?
rats need their tails for balance
Provide the Rat with balance.
Because of what we're doing to the world of course. They need fresh air and clen water to survive. Not polluted air and dirty water.
I dont know the answer
They're not actually hairless, as they have a fine dusting of hair along the entire length. It's a adaption to allow rats to pump large amounts of blood into the veins along t…heir tails to cool their body temperature down. It's quite effective.
Rats' tails actually do have hair, they just don't have very much. The reason why though is because a tail with a limited amount of hair works better for balance and grip. If …you like rats but just don't like the tail, there is a type of at without a tail called (of course) the tailess rat. Just find a goot breeder that has them and you should be pretty good off.
not really maybe a few hairs here and there but not really hope that helps
A rat's tail serves two main functions: 1. The tail is useful in temperature regulation. As rats do not perspire, they have to use other means to regulate heat in the body. T…hey are able to expand and constrict the blood vessels in their tails to allow more or less heat to escape from the hairless skin on the tail. 2. The tail helps in balance. Although we generally think of rats as scurrying around on the floor or in a lab cage, in nature they are rather nimble creatures. A rat is able to use its tail to provide balance when climbing branches, ropes, chains, etc. This function serves the same purpose as the tail of a cat or kangaroo.
A rat has a longer and fatter tail. Also, rats are a lot bigger than mice.
Since rats are generally larger than mice, they also have larger tails. Other than that, the tails are quite similar.
Because they get cut off when they're 1-2 days old.
