Popcorning is something rats do when they are excited or having fun. They just kind of jump/wiggle mid-step ad pop up in the air like a kernel of popcorn popping! It's really cute, mostly it tends to occur when the rats are young but can be displayed throughout life
A sign of excitement and happiness that is often seen in play. Some rats do it their whole lives, but it is typically seen in young rats. Only one of my 5 boys still popcorns and he is the youngest. Cherish it while you can!
Delilah popcorns, I think, when she knows it's time to come out. She hops and runs in circles and sometimes both so it's like a little spin hop lol. This morning she popcorned on my shoulder! I had a mini heart attack thinking she was going to fall off of me!
