Eggshell Confounds Rats In This Video

A hardboiled egg is a nifty treat for rats, provided the shell is off or at least cracked.

This video is an perfect an example of going from oh-so-excited to oh-so-frustrated. Each rat comes in and discovers the hardboiled egg, but after rolling it around and trying to bite it, discovers that  nothing much is happening. They seem to know that there’s something good inside, but they can’t get to it. Happily, the owner intervenes to create an opening that the rats quickly capitalize on. There is then joy in the cage, except for brief tussles to determine which rat gets to hold and munch on the egg.
