Running away from me.

Well, I've had my rats for around 2 months now, and one of them keeps running away when I walk in the room, he scurries to his tube EVERY TIME. It's making me kind of sad, is he going to stay like this? What can I do to make him trust me and stuff, if he always runs away? :(

maybe if you walk with a heavy step, he is getting frightened of the loud "boom" ( as i would imagine any small animal would hear it as a BOOM rather than a soft step)

if not, then just keep offering treats and play time and it'l come around.
make sure he knows you are a friend! especially a friend that has food
