I have two girls: Roz & Daphne, ~ 6mo
When I first got them (1.5 months ago) Roz was definitely the alpha. She was constantly protecting Daphne & just had an alpha attitude.
Now I’m not sure, is it possible for the social hierarchies to change among rats?

Additionally Daphne now weighs more than Roz, when they were identical when I got them. She weighs 0.040 KG more than her sister.

Lastly, I’ve included a clip of what I assume is average rat play behavior? Maybe some humping? Daphne is the female on top.
