So I was at the petstore a couple days ago, and they had 3 very young rats in a cage. At first glimpse I thought they were hairless, and what's when the person working asked if I needed help. I pointed to them and asked how much they were, how old, the sexes, etc., etc.,... And if they were hairless. Sooo she went to ask someone else of course... There wasn't much of an answer. 2 girls 1 boy, 15 dollars, 'young', and they weren't hairless, but "I dont know what's up with them."
Sooo of course I bought a female, because I had wanted to get Lola a cagemate.
After getting home and researching a bit, I've figured out she [Cupcake! lol.] is a double rex.
I'm just wondering if anyone can help me out with the age, by chance?
Also -- do double rexes grow just as big as normal rats?
So here's a few pictures... I'm hoping someone can guestimate the age of her, from her sitting next to Lola who shoouuuld be full grown.
Thanks for any help.
The introduction went AWESOME.
Lola immediately began grooming Cupcake, lol! They cuddle together in the box... Lola is very motherly towards her.
