Rats and other rodents playing together

How common is it for rats to play with other rodents?

My housemate has a rat named Doyle who altrnately gets along with and fights with my gerbils. Could it possible have anything to do with Depp being in heat? Doyle seems to object to her the most when she's been....playing with Hamlet.

My first rat got along fine with my guinea pig. My second did okay. It was funny, I got her before him, but he always kind of acted like it was HIS house and SHE was the new one. He liked to sneak up behind her cage and steal her timothy hay through the bars. They got along fine, though. I've never tried introducing one of my rats to any other rodent, though. Milo (and the degus) are all fine with my puppy, but that's not quite the same. (it's actually the puppy that's incredibly curious about the rodents, but scared of them if they get too close, lol)

My girl rats have met the variety of animals i've brought in from my rescue, and they've gotten along with all of them(Degus and Guinea pigs).
