They live in a huuuge cage with many hammocks, ropes and soft beds, so no worries guys ;)Rats perform this bizarre behaviour when they feel their dominance is being threatened, but nowhere else have I ever heard of rats standing up like this for over five minutes straight at a time! Normally it should be for just a couple of seconds.
They cause damage to buildings by chewing on insulation, sidings, and wallboard.

Dark brown droppings are also commonly found where rodents eat and in other areas.

Thought to have originated in northern China, this rodent has now spread to all continents, except Antarctica, and is the dominant rat in Europe and much of North AmericaŚmaking it the most successful mammal on the planet after humans.
