Oddest Behavior: What does it mean? Empty Oddest Behavior: What does it mean?

My sibling has a few girls in a 20 gal aquarium, which includes little door on the lid. If opened, the mice sometimes like to jump on the ceiling and climb out through the lid door. However, one mouse, Blinky, has the strangest behavior regarding this. Once she climbs through the door and is on the top of the tank, she sits there scrunched up like an orb and just stares. If left like that, she has no problem just sitting and staring off continuously. If you interact with her then she responds like normal, and if you move her to some place else then she moves around like normal. The other mice don't have this behavior at all! If one of the others jumps then climbs out of the door, they walk around the top like they would anywhere else. This only happens with Blinky and it boggles our minds! She doesn't seem scared or upset, but then what does her behavior mean, and is she the only one who does this? We've dubbed her "Orb Mouse" meanwhile. Smile

TL;DR - Mouse likes to get out to the top of the aquarium tank and sit there spacing out for as long as you allow it. It only happens on top of the tank. Wondering if anyone knew why or if anybody else's mouse does this?

Oh wow, this is interesting behavior indeed. Seems harmless. Sry that I do not have any answers. When some of my mice explore a new area, once in the new area (a area at a certain height etc) A couple of my females have been known to just stare / space out, but not for too long. Seems like they are contemplating or simply, I'm not sure....relaxing. Very strange indeed. Keep us updated Wink

I also believe it is harmless. Just wish I knew what it meant! Laughing She still does this, she has the most interesting personality of all the mice here. Loves exploring, always moving the fastest (hyper), attempting to climb impossible things, typically brave. The "orb" behavior is just one of her interesting quirks I guess!
