    Yah, they succumb to peer pressure. Here is an extract from New Scientist: “It’s not just humans who succumb to peer pressure – rats do too. Brown rats have a tendency to disregard personal experiences and copy the behaviour of their peers. What’s more, the urge to conform appears to be so strong that they will choose to eat food they know to be unpalatable when interacting with other rats that have done the same.”
