now i know girls will vibrate or "flutter" their ears when in heat and their backside is rubbed. well we were giving everyone baths last night and i discovered that a girl in heat is the easiest thing to bathe! so there was Twix and Kakushi all a flutter and when then when we went to dry off Bribery (my neutered male) he started to vibrate his ears too. 8O i didn't know males did that. he couldn't have been in heat no matter how you look at it. does anyone know why he did this or what it meant? and is Bribery the only one or has other males done the ear flutter thing too?

i give them baths the same way i would a baby. i even use the johnson's baby soap. i'm careful not to get any water or soap in their ears or eyes. wet the rat, rub in the soap, rinse and repeat if necessary then towel dry.

yes, it would be bribery to do that of course. he doesn't act much like a man rat yet but that's ok, i like hand wrestling with him.

but has anyone seen this in males before? or might know what it meant?
