Rat In A Shower Acts Just Like A Human

You won’t believe your eyes when you see this rat in a shower washing himself just like a human.


In these uncertain times, good personal hygiene has become so important. And it seems that this trait has been passed on to the animals too. Cleanliness is a mantra that this rat has taken very seriously. Just watch this incredible footage of a wild rat standing up on it's hind legs in a bathroom sink in Huaraz city, Ancash, Peru.

The rat appears to be soaping himself up and scrubbing down, just like a human taking a shower. I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing because it even looks like he's cleaning underneath his armpits. People all over the Internet have seen this unbelievable clip and it has racked up more than 37 million views.

Now, as we wade through the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems everyone is noticing our changes in personal hygiene, including the rats. I’m going to count that as a very good thing in an otherwise tough season.

There is no doubt that this rodent definitely appears to be in his element as he cleans off without a care in the world. I've honestly never seen anything like this before and I am so glad someone caught this unusual situation on camera. I would love to know more about this rat and where he formed his good habits. What do you think about this cleanly rat? Have you ever seen a wild animal act so human before?
