Birds and the Bees...and the Rats

We got 2 girl rats for Christmas this year and have really enjoyed them more than I expected. While we were out shopping at the pet store we were comparing all the different rodents (hamsters, gerbils, rats) and talking about their behaviors and personalities. The assistent then mentioned they were selling females at their store and if we wanted males they were available at a store across town.

So my next question was "Is there a difference between the males and females?" MEANING OF COURSE is there a difference in personalities or behaviors! Like is one gender more aggresive etc.

Her response: "Well, yes, the males have tiny testicles. But they are fuzzy so that's ok."

Jeff couldn't stop lauging.

Ha ha, that's super funny. And it's even better that she said that in front of Jeff who I'm sure made the most of it :)
