Do Rats Have Personalities?

These four boys came to me last year from Cathe. I wanted them to come live with Ben as he was alone. They are almost identical in every way. Their markings are quite simliar to each other. Except for their personalities that is.

Rats have completely unique personalities that once they make themselves known to you makes it so easy for you to be able to tell your rats apart from each other.
Flick is the goofy boy. Always the first one at the door and loves to hand wrestle.

Ralphie is the daring one of the group and likes to be in charge.

Harvey has a little notch in his ear and seems to love me the least openly.

Tucker is more reserved than the rest and usually comes to see me after his brothers have moved away.

Ben is a bit older and and isn't as prone to spontaneous play as the rest. He tries so hard to keep his composure but has been known to leap about with utter abandonment.

So you see, rats have completely distinct personalities.
