3. Actually it's not a rat...

It's some other kind of rodent, from South America, I think (forget which)

And it's normal grooming behavior for that species...

It is not a rat. It is a pacarana. Pacarana's do that type of bathing all the time in the wild in the streams & rivers. They are mostly from Peru."

6. Most likely the pacarana got some greasy stuff on its fur and is trying to get it off

rather than soap. The person who uploaded the video claimed it was a wild one in Peru and not a pet.
