LOL, first off im pretty sure you have gotten the rat off yoru head by now right? I hope so at least. Yes, the rats is most likely scared and needs some time to get used to its new cage and will need some socialization. The only advice I can give as to if this situation happends again is just to calm down and let the rat also calm down so that he/she can get down safely? lol

haha, i love it when my rats groom my hair. it's really long and if it's braided or in a ponytail, they always seem to want to set it free. i can her them thinking, "you don't want this on here, right? it'd be so much nicer without this tie here..."

Where did you get him?A breeder or a petstore,we don't have that many breeders that my parents will drive me too,so we got Ollie from PetsMart.He is the first rodent that I've gotten from there that doesn't try to chew my hand off,he should settle down in a few days,hes probably just stressed out.
