Whats the difference between DUMBO rats and FANCY rats ? dumbo rats are fancy rats, Fancy just means domesticated rats.. dumbo have their ears on the sides of their head so they look bigger while standard fancy's just have them on the top like a regular rat
Is the temperment different ? nope temperment isn't changed by the ears
Does anyone know if i can get Dumbo rats in the UK / NORTHERN IRELAND ive checked the net but can't find anything ? normally here petstores have them mixed with the other rats
How many times a day should i feed the rats is there a limit ? i just give them a bowl that always has some, they shouldn't over eat they will eat when hungry and run it off in no time. feed a lab block (just a pellet form of mixed food this gives them a well balanced diet so they can't pick out the things they like best, then you can give them fruits and veggies also nothing too fatty or sugary often
And can you take rats outside / eg. carrying them around ? yea you can take them outside but you take risks in it, they can run away, get caught by a dog or cat or get into things they shouldn't eat like pestiside, rat poison, or other trash
Also know that most harnesses made for rats its hard to get it tight enough they can't squrm out but not too tight they can't breath well
hope this helps you
Have fun with your rats they are great!!
