    Hello there! I am decently new to rat ownership, and I was curious to know if there are any common themes to look for in terms of knowing if your rat will turn aggressive? I’ve seen threads that talk mainly about male aggression, but I’ve seen a fair share of them talking about females as...

    So, this morning, I was filling up the rat's food and checking for poops when my laziest rat (I MEAN IT!! HE IS SO LAZY!) started acting hyper. He was jumping around and tackling the other rat when it is usually the other way around. He has been acting off all day and I was wondering if your...

    If this post would be better suited for the Rat Health section let me know, but we live in Colorado and figured a humidifier was needed. I can't help but be a little worried about using something "ultrasonic" for them, as they can hear up to 90 kilohertz. I couldn't find anything that wasn't...
