Question how big is a rat

how big is a rat compared to a mouse? does anyone have a mouse and rat that they could take a pic of them together because i want to get a rat but i dont know theyre full size.........
do mice and rats get along? as in if i got a rat could the rat and the mice play together or would i have to get two rats?

Mice is the plural form of mouse and there is no mouses or mices. Rats are a lot bigger than mice and could probably step on a muse and kill it. They also have different diets and needs.

Rats are a lot bigger than mice. And no, not a good idea to have them play/live with each other. Rats are generally about 7-8 inches long (tail not included in that), and can get up to 2 pounds. Mice can basically fit in the palm of your hand, and a rat is much bigger than that.

I've seen a picture where someone had their squishy rat placed next to a full grown guinea pig, and they were basically the same size.
