The New Guy (:

I went into a shop today where I had gotten completely reliable animals from before (not like the shabby one the other rats came from) and was amazed to see that they'd gotten a some lovely hairless rats in (: !!!!!

I'd been doing research on the weird strains of rats, but unfortunately there are no breeders near me ): so I asked the pet shop owner and she said her friend bred up North! After careful inspection I fell in absolute love with one of them and took him home.

His name is Constantine, he's about eight months old he's very sweet. I'm quarantining him for a little bit, but I'll make sure to spend LOTS of time with him and theres a heating pad under a section of his cage.

So after he's clear, I'll introduce him to the boys!
If they're too rough (which I doubt they will be) I'll just get him a new roomie

Feel free to give me some advice pertaining to hairless rats (:

Thanks!

Congrats. He almost looks a little bit like a double rex.

CongRATS!
He is a cute little guy.

Hairless and double rex have higher metabolisms and need to eat more then furry rats and you also have to make sure they are not too cold.When I had nekkid rats,I would give them fleece and they loved it! Their skin is also a little more sensitive and they are prone to little cuts and scratches.
