WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT RATS?
READ MY F.A.Q. (handling, care, behavior, etc...) ________________________
I guess I had never posted any photo of such a typical rattie expression here before... this is what happens when rats are very happy : they are "chattering" or bruxing, which means they're gnashing their teeth which makes their eyes pop out (they are actually vibrating). It's pretty cute and it's something all rats owners really enjoy as it means "I'm the happiest rat ever"
I've got plenty shots of my ratties chattering but I never posted any of them here as they most of the time look VERY stupid (and Arkanys is no exception on this one
Arkanys, black irish dumbo rex rat, born April the 16th 2010.
He is the sweetest rattie ever, he's very cuddly, licky and playful. He's also quite the little clown and always make funny faces. He's a pretty smart rat who learn tricks very quickly and is also quite the friendly and glue-like rat who would do anything to be allowed to go to work with my boyfriend or follow me anywhere
Arkanys comes from an unwanted litter from a rescue doe, Harley, who had been abandonned by her previous owner. The foster family who rescued her didn't seem to know males and female rats shouldn't play on the same area together and the girl who adopted Harley soon discovered that she was pregnant...
I saw a video showing Harley's pups and my boyfriend and I just melt when we saw Arkanys cute little nose and white socks... So we adopted him and I must say this rattie is the cutest thingie ever and I can't believe such a small rat has so much love to give
