Might be an allergy or Ive seen some people say it can be exitement. His new environment might be making his nose ich. If it dosent get any better take him to the vet or if he has a snotty nose, is off his food or has a red stain on his nose. There are some handy llinks for rat health on the myspace below.

if you just got him it is probably just being in a new home that is making him sneeze. If there is no discharge you should be ok just keep an eye on it. What kind of bedding is he on?

Like Stephanie says, it's most likely new home sneezes. They should slow down in a few days.

As long as you don't have him on pine or cedar, and there isn't any quantity of porphyrin leakage (red discharge) from eyes, nose or mouth, then I wouldn't worry too much at this stage.

See I'm having the same problem with my new girl. I've only had her for 2 days, so I'm hoping it's just her taking in all the new smells. I let her out a lot and she's just so curious about everything and smelling everything! Cause she doesn't sneeze in her cage. So I'm hoping it's just new environment.

Plus I got her sister from the same litter and isn't sneezing at all, but she also isn't as curious and running around as much as the first one.

So (cross my fingers) I hope it's just new home sneezes
