Rats on best behaviour

Posted on Friday 17th July 2009 @ 12:17 pm

In an attempt to get an expert view on Ambaa’s and Jaali’s behaviour from the knowledgeable keepers on the Exotic Keeper Forum the rats’ playtimes are now being filmed.

It would be helpful to get other owners’ views on whether there’s a chance that they will eventually get on together. Continuing to try and get them to make friends is very stressful for all concerned.

However neither Ambaa or Jaali will perform for the camera – that is they don’t misbehave when the camera is on. Jaali wanders quietly around Ambaa or sits close by and has a wash. Ambaa looks quite wary and gives the occasional squeak but nothing more.

Once the camera’s off, or they’re off camera, Jaali will chase Ambaa with his teeth bared and she’ll yell at him and box his nose. Perhaps the camera needs to stay on all the time.
