Mummy rat is in heat (does do this every 4-5 days - it's normal don't worry :) ) and baby rat is taking advantage of the situation to try and get a bit of dominant behaviour over on her mum :lol: - mum will get her own back when baby comes into heat :wink: .

It's not a sexual thing, it's just part of ratty group dynamics. My group go nuts when one of the girls is in heat - everyone else will try to hump the girly in heat, poor thing :roll:
