Live Rat Sm

Many people don’t consider rats as possible pets because of their preconceived notions about these animals. However, if given a chance, you will learn that rats are highly intelligent, friendly, and enjoyable small animals who make great pets.

There are many species of rats around the world. Rats are bigger bodied than mice and have a long tail. They are nocturnal and have terrible vision—they rely on their other acute senses for survival. Rats live between two and three years. They are social and do better in groups. If properly handled and handled often, your rat will become tame enough that you can teach him simple tricks. He may even come to recognize you and greet you at his cage’s door, and he may eagerly play with you and crawl all over you.
