Wow, worked first try! Thanks Chicken.thecitychicken said:I do this thing where I click the fingernails on my thumb and middle finger together. You know, the way little kids think you snap? It sounds like rat teeth. I think they seem to like that.
Ive got rreally sensitive teeth from bruxing! It was fun though :lol:thecitychicken said:It's pronounced "BRUHx-ing."
Humans can have bruxing. Usually people report to their doctors or dentists that they are grinding their teeth, like when they sleep. Doctors call that bruxing, too. I've taken Prozac, in which one of the side effects listed is "bruxing." It's not quite so cute when humans brux.
I have 12 two week old rats. I found out yesterday they are fairly easy to get to brux. However, you have to hold them really close to your ear while you're petting them to hear it!
