||Seven weeks old|
||Brantford, Ontario, Canada|
is Maks, he belongs to myself and my son. He is a seven-week-old
dumbo rat. We bought him tin stoney creek as a companion for our nine month
old rat (sprout). Maks
the dumbo rat is new to our family. So far he's very shy, unless you've
come to the cage bearing food!
Just in the past couple of days has he gotten familiar and
comfortable with his new home. He will climb the bars and loves being
petted while doing so. As soon as you take him out of the cage it's a
different story. All he wants to do is hide.
That is why, so far, maks only comes out of the cage once a day in the
evening, under my supervision. Only for a short period of time, because
we don't want to upset him. So far maks loves corn bran cereal and
green grapes as treats. And us!
