So, the "High-Whites" are at risk for Megacolon, right? I was looking through the local pet ads and found these AMAZINGLY beautiful looking rats (at least, in my opinion).
Here is the link to the ad: ( err, forum won't let me post it -_- )
If the link is gone when you read this post, the picture attached to this post. I think these are amazing looking rats, but as they're just being sold for $3 on Craigslist, I have my doubts that this is any kind of reputable breeder at all.
I am just.... fascinated by these rats in the picture. But considering their looks, megacolon, and the $3 Craigslist ad, are these likely to have many genetic health issues?
Please someone chime in. I can't believe the variations I am seeing. Maybe I am just clueless.
Is there any chance these are perfectly bred, perfectly healthy rats that would live long lives as pets? Or even breeders?
