    Very cute!! I can't wait to get my hairless ratties.

    For the rattie to be a "him", it appears to be missing some important (extremely noticeable) parts. I see no testicles. Are you sure it's a him!? It looks like a doe.

    Jynnelle, I am happy you got what you wanted, Frodo is his name, right? Anyway that is something to see one with no hair.

    He is cute, do you ever get bit by these guys? Or are they pretty much tamed when you get them? I think Lin would like to have a rat, not not a boy friend, a real rat. She loves rats, lizards and snakes, always has. She seen something at a flea market one time, that looked like a small rat, but hopped like a kangaroo, have no idea what it was called. Do you know what I am talking about Jynelle? Anyway, she begged and begged for it.

    Thank You, kittycats_delight for my new siggy!!!

    I HAVE!! Not recently though. My two agouti ratties Nugget and Sweet Pea were down right vicious. They lunged at the cage wires just SMELLING human flesh. I have scars all over my hands from them. I have no clue what I did to make them attack like that. I tried my hardest to stop them. At one point it got so bad I had to put gloves on to get them. I still loved them even though I couldn't bond with them as much. Nugget and Sweet Pea are at the RB now.

    Rats aren't generally biters, but if they aren't socialized then they can be pretty bad fear-biters. My rat Frisco has always been socialized with people, but not rats. So I'd always get the bite whenever he lunged for my Icarus. I have two hideous scars on my arm lol. I mean huge. One of them is puffed up like a big scab, but it's healed. Both happened when he lunged for Icarus and I put myself inbetween them. He gets so disorientated and doesn't realize what he's doing. My fault lol. I've since given up on letting them socialize.

    Great pics! Sweet little guy.
    I've been BOO'd!

    Jynelle, your Frodo does look like a doe. In hairless rats sometimes a doe can be mistaken as a male as their urethra is a lot more noticable then on a furred rat. You can also see a bulge down there, that looks like undecended testies. If it is indeed a male, his testicles would already have descended, as he looks well over the age, and the testicles are pretty evident as early as three weeks old. Sometimes they do not descend til later, but from the pics, SHE looks very much like a doe.


    Also, to let you know, that's not a hairless, she's a double rex. There is way too much fuzz on the face for her to be a true hairless. Either that, or she is a fuzzy hairless, which is just a bad hairless.

    That animal sounds very much like a gerboa. Did it have a long tail and long legs? I wouldn't suggest buying any animals from a flea market, as most likely they are stolen, or forbidden animals to have in your state.

    I saw him at the petstore before I bought him though, and his testicles weren't sucked into his abdomen, they were out, and even bigger than my rats'! However, since I had him, they haven't...popped out...LOL. But the penis looks too far from the anus to be a female to me.

    He's not a double rex, he's a nude ...He only has whiskers on his face. One of his parents was standard, the other other nude or hairless (The breeder didn't know).
    I've been BOO'd!

    Cass, you really think so, about a flea market? I never thought of that at all. Thanks for warning me.

    This little critter stood on its hind legs like a kangaroo does, see how knowledgeable I am? Smart aren't I? LOL. Yes it had a long tail, and long legs. A gerboa? I would not doubt it, seems like the state of Tennessee, forbids a lot of animals that other states allow. Bad part of Tennessee. I guess about the only thing good to buy at a flea market is fleas? LOL, I usually just go to look at the old dolls, I love old dolls and collect them. My husband goes because of the chickens.

    I will watch about that kind of stuff though Cass, I really appreciate the info. Okay? Thank you.

    Maybe a degu, or a gerbil?

    I don't think it was a gerbil, somebody show me a picture of a gerbil. Does anybody have a picture of a gerbil? I am just not smart in this kind of pet, I know a hamster when I see one, (I think) and I know a rat when I see one. (I'm pretty sure) and I know a guiena pig when I see one of those(I am sure about that, LOL)

    Any info,I would appreciate, I will make sure I don't get anything like that from a flea market, you can rest assured of that. Thanks for your info, Cass and Jordan.
