Duncan, the Pet of the Day
Name: Duncan
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dumbo Rat
Home: Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA
   Duncan is a blue-agouti dumbo rat. He lives with his cagemates Justin, Fletcher, and Blue Bear in Los Alamos, New Mexico. He loves to give kisses and is a soft cute boy. Rats are very sweet and affectionate creatures, especially hand-raised fancy rats from responsible breeders!

    Duncan is very affectionate. He enjoys having his back scratched and will excitedly run up to the cage door whenever I enter the room. He likes to ride on my shoulder and lounge on my desk when I use the computer. His favorite trick is rather silly - if I open my mouth, he will peer inside, playing dentist. He loves green peas and will go fishing for them in a tub of water. It's funny to watch him feeling for peas under the water with his front paws and dunking his head to search for them too! However, he only likes the inside of the peas, removing the outer round shell. He's a great rat who enjoys both human and rat company!
