The Sound of Rat Laughter

Ever wonder if rats can laugh? Well, the answer is that not only can they laugh, but they can be tickled - and they like it too! Unfortunately, we never get a chance to hear this laughter because it occurs at a high frequency outside our auditory range. Thanks to this video, provided by Dr. Jaak Panskepp and Huff Post Science, we can hear rat laughter for the first time. This adorable video just makes us want to go out and tickle our rats!
