I recently had surgery and I'm In the recovery phase of counting the dots on my ceiling, my little buddies are both my comfort and entertainment. I had stones removed from my kidneys. So, you can imagine how uncomfortable I was when I awoke a few minutes ago to some loud rustling going on from my cage. I found out that Jean (The lowest in the hi archy) was humping Marv (Dominant Alpha). Now usually Marv humps jean... a lot, especially when I let them out to play. So of course I was a bit surprised to see it the other way around. Is this normal? Marv seems to be a pretty friendly alpha to the others so I dont know if this is play, hormones or something else. P.S. I just recently began to own more than one rat which is partly why I'm concerned. I've had Marv for a year and Jean and Armin for about four months.
