The Story starts like so many others. An online ad for a “vicious biting rat”…need to get rid of, snake is frightened of it now.
I emailed, and discovered this rat was female and was biting everything and everyone. Every day they took her out of her tank and put her in with the snake…for 2 weeks. She bit the people, she bit the snake, until it was terribly frightened of her. They also told me that it could never be a pet since it was truly vicious and they were VERY hesitant to let me have her as a pet. Finally I convinced them and they were so happy to get rid of this monster plaguing their life, they delivered her to me.
I met them downstairs in my lobby and they practically threw the box at me. I opened it up not knowing what the heck I was getting, and saw these bright black eyes peering up at me. I just scooped her up and kissed her right on the face. The “Monster” was a 5-6 week old black rex berk girly. I popped her on my shoulder and she happily stayed there as I taught the people about pet rats.
Carina Snake Biter had arrived, and feisty that she was she never bit again.
She was a whirlwind as a baby, practically vibrating with energy all the time. I introduced her to Shadow, Otto and Wilbur.
Wilbur was the best Uncle and let the little monster take him down LOL
Sweet old Shadow was her mother figure
Uncle Otto was her friend
Carina became a stocky woolly bear who…would…not…dangle!
Someone has a full mouth
Give me that treat!!
Why do you bother?
My last head hug
I am sure her Godparents SQ and Godmother are both grieving, just as much as I, that this bright little spirit is gone. ((hugs)) to you both…she was a special one.
