    Do female rats get periods?

    I am trying to choose between male and female rats and I really do not know! So I am getting all my concerns out of the way.

    No. They do not menstrate. If your female rat is bleeding there, something is gravely wrong.

    No. Or, more accurately, they don't bleed. Rat's do however go into heat for approximately 24 hours EVERY 4 days. Some females you can't even tell and then others... Lol Their whole personality changes. May be something that you want to consider.
