haha, i like the thing where you jam your giant fingers into tiny baby rat mouths so that later in life they don't bite you as hard as often. just struck me as a hilarious picture. my boy likes to poke picasso until she falls over whenever she tries to sit up and groom during playtime. i imagine her response is a bit dry and sarcastic, but pity i can't hear her words.

i didn't know that rats could separate their bottom teeth to bite harder and deeper. i just thought it was the fact that their teeth are so tiny and sharp, lol.

Completely and utterly off topic, but...

The person who owns that website seriously needs to invest in a vacuum. If you look around the site (especially in the rabbit picture section) it looks as though their floors haven't been cleaned in years :p

Rabbits are well cute!
I thought my two were biting me at first but then i realised they were tasting me, they do it all the time-I must smell good-that getting my nipple chewed today was a bit to far though! I got a "i dont want to get out of bed so you can wash it bite" but it didnt draw blood-im kind of shocked that some do-is it pretty standard that you will bleed at some point?

"As a personal side-note, I've found that if you stick your fingers in the mouths of baby rats, when they get older, they are recognizably much nicer with your digits that those who did not have your fingers shoved in their mouths at an early age"
We wrestled with our youngest more as she was growing up than we did with our eldest, and she is much less likely to nip a finger through the cage than our eldest is. :)

I didn't know about the separating the bottom teeth thing!

I think I have to disagree with the last bite that they talk about, though, based on the nasty bite I had from our eldest rat. I stupidly put my hand in there without washing it, after handling the young rat (while they were separated before introductions). Ratty bit me frantically, squeaking and going crazy. I had one deep wound where she went in with her bottom teeth, and 6 or 7 where she was trying to grab with her front teeth to get a good grip on me. Every single one of these bite marks was defined and clearly showed the two teeth, top and bottom, side by side. :?
