Poway Wildlife Tip:
What is a rat`s mating habits?

The reproduction of rats occurs at an astonishing rate. Unlike other mammals, rats can almost triple their population within a very short time. The analysis of the behavioral and hormonal trends of adult rats in reproduction would typically also involve the distinguishing of the two major species of rats found in the world and their different mating habits. It is however hard to distinguish habits between the Norwegian rat and the brown rats. Most of them are shared and interlope.


Often, brown rats live in large groups in subterranean hollows. They are always seem to prefer lower grounds and would rather inhabit basements and sewers than rooftops. The brown rat has the following mating habits.

1. They can breed throughout the year with the female rat giving birth to up to five litters of ten babies a year.
2. They have a very small gestation period of 21 days. Typical of most rat species, the female can get pregnant almost immediately after giving birth.
3. Sexual maturity is achieved at around five weeks after birth.

The mating behavior of brown rats is decidedly strange. The males have the ability to ejaculate almost four times in a row. This significantly increases the chances of pregnancy. In mating, females will always show preference to mating with males that were not earlier mated with them and those who show no signs of social stress during puberty stage.


Similarly to the brown rat, the black rat has the ability to mate all year round if the conditions are right. They are however seen to like mating during the autumn and summer months when temperatures are higher and there is more food in the surrounding environment.

1. The pregnancy period of the black rats is decidedly longer than that of the brown rats. This is however only by a few days with the excesses going to a week.
2. Similar to the brown rat, the black can give birth almost five times a year with the numbers of babies per litter ranging between five and fourteen. Female rats can also fall pregnant immediately after giving birth.


The reproductive rate of both the brown rats and the black rats is mostly surprising. To be able to control the ever increasing risk of mass rat infestation in our cities, study of the mating habits is paramount. This would help human beings to tilt the conditions in their favor and regulate the ever increasing rat population that always portends more danger than good to us.
