i have a hairless rat and a brown colored rat. both are females. they get along together if i put them both in the bath tub for bathing. they wont attack each other there. but if i take them both out of their cage to hang out together they fight(which ive only done once because the hairless is so easy to get scratches and infections from the scratches). anybody have tips on getting them to hang out together without fighting?

Rats will always fight strange rats because they are naturally territorial. You cannot get non-cagemates to play together outside of the cage normally.
If you plan on introducing them to live together you need to research how to do it. But if you plan on them living alone with playtime together...ain't gonna happen. :p
