How old are your rats?

Do you prefer males or females? What are your rats names? What colors and where did you get them at?

Hi I have 4! They are all females hooded rats except for one who is an albino. Okay, I know that this has nothing to do with the questions that you asked but ... I think that it is really :(sad:( that rats have such a bad reputation! I mean it was just that the rats carried fleas. The fleas were the ones who carried th plague. People go to the pound every year and adopt stray animals that may or may not have or had fleas!

Okay if you have more than one, just chose one your rats ages. Or you can put the average age.

My rats are babies!! One is about 8 weeks (just weaned) and the other is around 10-11 weeks. The older one is a Buff Hooded Rat and the young one is a Mismarked Black and White. They are the sweetest!!

I had one rat Edmund and he lived to be 4 or 5 (I'm not sure how old he was when I got him). I hear that is about the max in rats which is a shame I love them so much.

Here's my little boy Masked Bandit. His mom took first in reserve and Best of Variety at the recent Rat Pacs NorthWest show that was held in Port Orchard Washington. I have his brother also, his name is HoodRat. He he. Their mom is an agouti masked. This boy is a mismarked masked, or half masked. His grandfather won First place dumbo class and Best of Dumbo Variety. He carries dumbo, rex, black husky, blazed, split cap, masked, aguti bareback and hairless.

And here is his pedigree. I have to edit certain parts of it though, like the part that says his grandfather carries dumbo when he is a dumbo. Silly me. So here it is.
