I was taking video of one of my rats the other day when I was led to seeing the other in quite an unusual position. Has anyone else seen rats do this before?

It was a pretty hot day, I wonder if maybe it was a way to try to cool off, or whether she was trying to mimic a human sitting position.

Hmm. I think the only real answer to this is rats are weird and do weird things.
My girl Raven's done the "Sit like a fluffy human" bit a couple times :) Except not against the cage wall, hehe. Maybe our rats are seeking enlightenment ;)

My "Mouse", that is his name,(R.I.P.) would sleep on his back,,feet reaching for the sky,,he would also push the bedding away and sleep on the bare plastic floor, my vet said, rats cool themselves through their tails, and paws, so it makes sense for them to expose as much body area as possible, to cool down
