My rats just came back from the pet store I bought them from (as they were sick with URI's) and are doing way better now. I'm excited. However, one of my rats, Dexter, seems to be different. When I'm in the cage fixing things or when I get anywhere near him, he lunges and bites me. Hard. He even latches on and sometimes it's difficult to get him off. I read somewhere that if they do this, you should squeak like a rat and they'll get the point and stop biting you. I have been doing this but he still doesn't stop. He also seems to be a bit aggressive with his cage mates, Heisenberg and Dixon. He will try to pin them and at first I thought they were playing but now I'm not so sure. I'm confused. He's been staying in his tube a lot and not socializing. Is it because of the medicine, perhaps? Or because I was told to switch heir food? What can I do? I want him to love me. Not bite me.
