This was a great video! You did a wonderful job of explaining how to teach a rat to do a basketball trick. I've been wanting to start training my rats, and I'll definitely be trying this out.

Your rat is also VERY cute!!! :)

Great explanation! I have a female rat, Cassie, so I always LOVE these videos.

Sweet. My pet rat Dragon will love this one :)
