    My Dumbo Rats

    YLL, Feel free to add a few pics of your cutie pies also!!!

    Dumbo rats have ears that are rounder in shape and placed differently on the head. This is not the only difference between a dumbo and a standard rat. Dumbos also have a differently shaped skull also with a broader fore head.

    Here is a pic of Roxy and Baby. Roxy is a black lightening blazed bershire husky and Roxy is a blue American Berkshire. Both are rex, they have curly hair.





    That is a pic of Cleo, a dumbo black eyed white patched rat.

    Spot, Cleos brother. A black bareback dumbo husky with headspot. Rats with white markins such as blazes and headspots are referred to as huskies. Huskies coloring also fades as they get older, this is referred to as roaning. Breeding to huskies together is risky as the babies can develope megacolon, a deadly disease if not treated immediately with surgery. The white spotting gene also causes eye color to change, resulting in odd eye rats....rats with two different color eyes.

    Cocoa, a cinnamon berkshire dumbo.


    Roxys eyes, one ruby and one pink, very good contrast. She's not dumbo but this is a chance for others to see another way in which the husky gene works.



    Another pic of Roxy! She is my favorite rat of all time. She is a silverfawn split capp stripe husky odd eye. Say that ten times fast, lol!

    The legend says that Mohammed adored cats. When one of them was sleeping on his sleeve and he had to go out, Mohammed supposedly cut off the sleeve so as not to disturb his pet.
