Exactly, and one of the experiments had different zones of comfort. One was where the top males ran the show. There was another zone where anything went. There was violence and chaos etc. And from what I remember, most of the rats in the protected zone ventured into the "combat zone-red light district" at one time or another on a regualr basis. hmmmmm.
