Rats versus mices[edit]

Is it possible that the animals in the picture are mice, rather than rats? Compare with a true naked rat on the right (both species being albino)

  • head of mouse is triangle and more pointed, rat more square
  • ears of mouse are bigger and a different shape (not dumbo)
  • body of mouse is sharper, rats body is rounder

I don't think the "naked lab rats" are (young) rats, I think they're mice, but I can be mistaken. Inge Habex 22:28, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
