  1. Rat Behavior
    Hey, I'm introducing two 10 week old boys to my two 9 month old males. One of my older boys is quite dominant towards the babies, he runs after them trying to bite / sniff / lick their private parts. I've done my research about introductions but I've never read anything about this behavior. I...
  2. Rat Behavior
    Good day I recently adopted a new rat from a rescue. He apparently had been found in somebody's garage, so it's unknown how long he had been living feral. He is a pretty siamese, probably an escaped pet. He bit me on the second day. I was touching him in his cage, so fair enough he probably...
  3. Say Hello
    Hi I'm just a funky lil guy and my rat is my best friend. I'm boring but I love to talk about my girls- but forewarning for my info dump, I talk about rat injury and death a bit (and uh malpractice, too) but I try not to be too graphic or sad. I got both of my lovely girls for $3 each as feeder...
  4. Rat Behavior
    Hi all, I used to have a mischief of 4 female rats who went on to live fabulous ratty lives. At this point, I am down to one rat, the alpha of the group. She is at least 2 years and 9 months old, but other than starting to "go gray" and the slightest slowing down of her back legs, you would...

    Hello! I just adopted two 2 month old rats yesterday. I've heard that rats do better in groups than they do in pairs so my plan was to get the two boys settled in and then start looking around for more roommates for them. I'm not quite sure what the timeline should be like to get the...

    Hi! My name is Kyra, also known as Therian Territory, and since a couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend and I decided to get 2 rats! After a little search, it turned out one of the ratteries in the neighborhood had 2 female rats for adoption with a little haste due to personal reasons (apparently...

  8. Rat Behavior
    Hi, I’m a first time rat owner and have never had to do introductions before. I bought my first rat, Wilbur (approx 1 year old) from the petstore I work at. He was separated for a few weeks from his brother after they fought and he was left with a large nonhealing wound that resulted in him...

    After waiting for a 29 days now, I finally get to introduce Thumbelina to her sisters! It's been a while since I've had to go through this process but I feel like it will be a good one. Going to start her off with the nicest of my rats to meet first since I have no idea if she's even been around...

    Byron has been introduced to Winston and Quincy. I haven't had issues with him and Winston, then again they don't really seem to acknowledge each other which needs to change. Quincy on the other hand is terrified, and Byron bit off a very small chunk of skin out of him. I hate seeing him so...

    First, I just want to start my very first blog post by saying that I loooooove this forum! I'm definitely happy that I happened to stumble across it the other day while Googling rat toy ideas. Now a little about myself. Hmmmm... Where to begin? I'm currently a 5th-year college student working...
