Some initial research concerning the provision of a Multi-Agent Based Simulation (MABS) frameworks, to support rodent simulation, is presented. The issues discussed include the representation of: (i) the environment and the characters that interact with the environment, (ii) the nature of the "intelligence" that these characters might posses and (iii) the mechanisms whereby characters interact with environments and each other. Two categories of character are identified: "dumb characters" and
