Rat kings

Rat kings

Rat Kings is a phenomenon that involves a group of rats intertwined by their tails. It occurs when young rats living close to each other get their tails entangled and encrusted with dirt. This knot then tightens when they pull away from the group. Though sometimes questioned of its authenticity, the oldest Rat King reported is a group of 32 mummified rats, held in a Thuringia museum.
