Time-Lapse Video of a Talented Rat
You may have heard of bat caves and man caves, but now you can see a rat cave.
Watch Tinkerbell, the bath-loving rat, build herself a rat cave in her own cage out of paper. This talented little rat becomes an architect at night when she finds some newspaper pieces around her cage. We had a newspaper laying around next to her cage one night and came back the next day to find her ripping it all up and building a little igloo-house out of scraps.
This is a time-lapse video of her working on taking the paper scraps down and folding them in a special way so the structure looks like her own rat cave at the end.
There is a special cameo appearance by one of our cats, 'Tootsy', who loves Tinkerbell and was watching the whole building process throughout the night.
This is a shortened video, but if you would like to see the original, you can here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-EmWIOApUo
