Blood, foul.

My two little ladies have been living together since October and have scuffles but never anything serious and certainly never blood. (one white, one black)

I put an apple core in the cage, ten minutes later I heard a LOUD squeak. Didn't really think anything of it.

Went over there now, it's been about an hour, and one rat (white rat) has blood on her nose. Can't tell whose blood it is right now (or who was the biter or the bite-ee).

Is everything okay? Should I be concerned?

Are you certain it's blood? Some rats can have a blood-like substance when stressed, etc?

They've been living together for eight months... I would think it would be an accident?

I would watch them, though, just to make sure no one's gone a bit aggressive...
