What is the part(s) of the body that rats use to regulate their body temperature?

Correct answer:
 
tail

Incorrect answers:
ears
tongue
soles of the feet

Interesting Info:
Because a rat's tail is bare, it lacks insulation and loses heat. When a rat is hot, more blood flows to the tail to help it lose heat. When a rat is cold, less blood flows to the tail, conserving heat.
