Some rat and mouse species are adapted for desert life. While R. norvegicus (common lab rat), does produce highly concentrated urine, it may be held in contrast to the Kangaroo rat, which is a desert adapted organism. It is worth pointing out that this is in contrast with the georgraphic and habitat preference in nautre. So, yes, they have great kidney function in terms of highly concentrated urine, but this is contradictory to their habitat.
