garthno said: Hey! So I had a question. Okay, so I just recently (around three weeks ago) bought two rats which were originally for feed. I have a VERY large cage for them, so they aren't stressed at all. But, my brown Berkshire, Pippin, aggressively bites to where he's bitten to the bone before in my finger. I'm worried that Pepper, my agouti Berkshire, is going to catch onto his habits. Any tips on how to stop an aggressive bitter?
I’m sorry to hear you’ve got a bitey problem! Fortunately, they are quite common so there’s a lot of information on it! Here is an ask I received a while back that is a little bit different, but the responses help with biting.
If anyone else has any suggestions, please contact the original asker or reply to/reblog this post with your advice :)
Here’s my babes! Pepper is the one on the right, and Pippin is the one on the left.
