The habits change when they grow up!

We loved our two first girls. They were so calm and relaxed. You could keep them tucked away in your shirt for hours and they would just sleep. Little boys are like popcorn. Literally. Rat #1 tags rat #2's but and rat #2 goes flying in the air, landing on rat #3's butt. Rat #3 goes flying in the air and lands on rat #4's butt. Rat #4 goes flying in the air and land's on rat #1's butt, and so on. They are just full of energy!

Suddenly they're all grown up, maybe around 3-4 months of age? I'm forgetful about these things. Anyway, they're all grown up and suddenly the girls are running around like they drank 6 cups of highly caffeinated coffee, and the boys are so asleep it would take an army of pizza delivery boys to wake them up!

Like their human counterparts, however, the boys sometimes develop huge cases of over-inflated ego. I guess you could call that activity, of course it doesn't usually last long unless the target of the attack is completely stupid and forget to flop over on his back and wave the "you win" flag.
