Have you ever heard of a cuddly deadly poisonous rats? If not, let me tell you they exist and are so cute when seen together. One might assume these crested rats live in complete solitude, but as it turns out they have a very loving cuddly family.
As lovable as they seem with one another, don’t assume they will be the same to you. If a human happens to be close to these rabbit-sized rodents, the wisest decision is to run for their life. These rodents chew the bark or other parts of poisonous arrow trees of East Africa to get the toxic saliva to apply it to specialized areas of the skin. They usually dribble and lick the toxic drool in their long rat fluff for an armed hairstyle. These toxins are later absorbed by the skin, and if a predator bites these rats, they get a furry bite of bitter toxins that humans use in their arrows to hunt larger animals.
But I believe even these animals have a cute side when it comes to being with their family. A lot of scientist have been doing research on them and their deadly skin, but what they found most interesting was the moment when they would put a male and female rodent on a cage and they could hear them purring, as if they wanted to be together. They were grooming each other, and cuddling whenever they would be close. Check out this video below to know more about these rats.
