The rat (Rattus sp.) is one of the most successful and adaptable mammals in the world. There are more than 60 species of rats, ranging from the tiny African pygmy mouse to the giant Gambian pouched rat. Rats are omnivorous and can eat almost anything, from grains and fruits to insects and garbage. They can also survive in diverse habitats, from forests and deserts to cities and farms. ¹ Rats are highly social and live in groups with their families. They communicate with each other using sounds, body language, and scent. They also groom each other and take care of sick or injured members. Rats are very curious and playful, and can even laugh when tickled. ² Rats are also very smart and can learn tricks, solve puzzles, and navigate mazes. They have excellent memories and can recognize humans and other rats they have seen before. They can also use tools, such as sticks and stones, to obtain food or escape predators. ³

This product is a digital reproduction of a vintage lithograph illustration of the rat, created by a skilled artist using the lithography method. Lithography is a planographic printing process that makes use of the immiscibility of grease and water. ⁴ The artist draws the image on a flat stone or metal plate with a greasy substance, then treats the surface with acid and gum arabic to make the non-image areas water-receptive and the image areas ink-receptive. The inked plate is then pressed onto paper or another material to produce the print. Lithography was invented in 1796 by Alois Senefelder and was widely used for artistic and commercial purposes in the 19th and 20th centuries. ⁵
