I've had a female dumbo ear'd rat for about three months so she should be about four months and she doesn't seem to go into heat at all. ....... I've never had this happen....I'm drawing a blank.....

Hm. Are you sure she hasn't come into heat? It isn't always terribly noticeable. Often when they are in heat they will do the ear fluttering and posturing and if there are other females in the cage sometimes they will hump each other (haha pretty funny to see), but it isn't always a huge thing. They go in and out of heat every few days after reaching sexual maturity at about five weeks of age.

Yay none of the above. She will "ride" the other girls but she hasn't shown anything herself.

Is it posible she's a boy in a girls body!!!!!!!!!!! 8O

Haha, the fact that she humps the other girls might actually mean she's in heat. It's hard to tell whose in heat the humper or the humpee!

Lol! As long as they aren't injuring each other and there is no blood I wouldn't worry much at all, they are just sorting out who is boss ^^
