Cool IFLScience article... tickling rats for science

Postby Kagney » Fri Dec 16, 2016 1:53 pm

I saw this article and thought I would share... http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-an ... heir-ears/
Its about rat facial expressions and connecting them with emotions. Short and interesting.
Its been 15 years since I had a rat, so I don't remember specific behavioral patterns... (just that she was extremely intelligent and affectionate) but maybe some of you current keepers can chime in. They mention in the article "ears flushing pink" as a sign of happiness or pleasure... anyone noticed anything like that before?
