Date taken Mar. 2006- I am posting this for educational purposes. The birth in this video is an uncomplicated typical rat birth. Mom and babies did great. Please dont breed your rat for fun. This female was a pregant rescue. She also is my “heart rat”, my best friend. Thanks for watching!

I have a female rat, approximately five months old, and she’s very high-strung. We get along well; she rides on my shoulders, follows me around, and loves to play. But she won’t let me hold her. She’s too restless and always wants to be moving. She’s a good pet, but she can’t sit still. She’s still just a baby, could her restlessness and need to be running around and getting into everything just be a young rat phase? Is this normal?
my sister got a rat and the man said it was a girl but its a boy and i kept my female rat and my sisters rat together in a cage. we took it to the pet shop and the mAN said that he was a boy but that they wouldnt have babies for about a week or 2 coz hes too young but my female rat rips up the newspaper and takes it in her cage and i told my nan and she said it might be making a nest?? i hope not but is it true?
One pair is my two rats, Rachel and Staci. I’m considering adopting two more rats from a rat owner who can no longer take care of them.
As far as I know the other rats are in good shape but of course I’ll quarantine them for a week or so before introduction.
Once I know the other rats are healthy, how should I go about introducing the pairs? Is it the same as introducing a new rat to a group or are there any tricks/problems I should know about?
I heard that spraying female rats can prevent tumors later in life. I have 2 rats that are 6 1/2 weeks. I also have 2 rats that are 3 month old rats (almost 4), and 3 rats that are 6+ month rats. I don’t know their age exactly, since they were bought at a pet store.
