Yep! It's called bruxing.

It can also signal nervousness, but probably not in that situation. Happy rats may also boggle. :lol:

bruxing can also indicate that a rat is in pain LoL you have to learn your rats body language before you understand what it signifies. The first time I saw Jackson boggle i thought he was having a seizure LOL

I know there are some on youtube if you search for "rat boggle" :D If I hadn't seen any videos first, I would have been scared to death when I first saw Rokk boggle! It looks so weird!
