Self-grooming is an innate behaviour displayed by all rats. There’s a great article about it on Isamu Stud’s website if you want to read more about it.
My video here shows Hummingbird’s baby doe’s earliest attempt to self-groom. We think these are all chocolate quicksilver babies, some of which will either carrying red-eyed-dilute or, perhaps, be discovered to be platinum rats.
Platinum rats are very rare right now in the United Kingdom, so we hope some of these paler ones turn out to be platinum. Meanwhile, we enjoy the cuteness of these little munchkins!
