Rats remember acts of kindness, and then reciprocate. A study published this week in Biology Letters showed rats remember who is nice to them and return the favor later. National Geographic calls it "the first evidence of direct reciprocation in nonhumans." We're not so sure about that last part, but it's an impressive finding, nonetheless.
