________________________


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 :slow: )

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 :heart:

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 :heart:

I love that sound. I grew up with cats, so I'm always a little disoriented when I'm with an animal that doesn't have a 'happy sound' that distinctive. Rats are awesome.

I love, love, love your rattie pictures. I've clicked on them before while browsing Deviantart, but I haven't commented or clicked favorites before . . .

I love this picture so much that I couldn't just exit out of the screen. The colors are so warm and rich, it's the perfect picture of contentment.

I love your photography! Seeing all your fancy rats make me want to get some of my own...but then I remember I have dogs that would think the rats are chew toys, and that would be a big no-no. Really, though, both the photography and the animals are lovely. ^^

My rat Pearl would rarely do that when her sister Trucy was around (she ended up dying from a seizure after her stroke, I don't know if you remember me asking about what to do about her), but now she's our only rat and she chatters almost constantly when we take her out. She's a lot more snuggly and stuff now, which is good for me, but it's kinda sad because she's really lonely. =(

haha another amazing rat shot. How did you get him not to try to eat the gold beads? :XD: watching them clean them selves and standing up on their hind legs sniffing around has to be my fav thing they do. Always brings a smile to my face.
