Rat Vocalization in Social Encounters
City:St. Catharines, ON
School:Sir Winston Churchill
Abstract:Rats emit vocalizations at an ultrasonic level. I put seven rats into two situations: a double rat and single rat situation. After recording and analyzing their vocalizations I was able to complete statistical analysis that showed a significantly higher frequency in the second call emitted in a social encounter as well that rats vocalize significantly more when together.
