One of my rats has been going into heat for the first few times. It seems to be getting quite extreme, the smallest touch on her back half sets her ear vibrations off.

This last time experiencing it, she seemed noticeably exhausted from the experience and was walking around with her body close to the ground and laying down in unusual places.

Is this fairly normal?


Thanks,

Jason

From my personal experience, it is normal - at least in my girls. Though some of them do it more than others.

Dela especially has some interesting heat cycles. They were worse when she was younger. I would just touch her and she'd be flying off, butt tucked to the ground. I agree with Grotesque that it's normal. Dela and Neera both act different when they're in heat and sometimes its worse and sometimes I don't even notice it. XD
