________________________


A very good friend of mine has taken care of a litter of 12 ratties which were meant to be used to feed snakes... she is searching for good homes for them and I went to take some shots of the babies to try to make some of my friends' hearts melt.
These babies are just too cute, very very sweet and cuddly, very friendly too, even with people they don't know :heart:
I'll adopt one of them and will post some pics of him as soon as I can take him home (mine is not this little one, this baby has already been adopted by someone else, many of his brothers and sisters are still up for adoption though).

"Little agouti cutie" - male agouti hooded standard rattie, born October the 23rd, 2010.

The photo is quite grainy as the room was only lit by a very small lamp which wasn't powerful at all... I used 1600 ISO to 2000 ISO values to get enough light, hence the noise. I'm amazed at how "clean" these 1600 ISO shots are compared to the ones I took with my old camera :heart:

Recently I was thinking take home two or more rats :aww: thank to you I discovered that rats are not ugly and scary as we see in films or cartoons, but they are (for my personal opinion) the cutest little animal I ever seen! Then when I saw "Ratatouille" by Disney for the first time (two weeks ago), I had the decisive conclusion: I take some rats! The only negative thing is that I haven't got a free room without dangers to make them play and explore, I could utilize the bathroom... is a good idea? ^^;
By the way, good shot! I admire your talent!

PS: sorry for my bad english ^^;

Snakes need to eat too! D: You can't save all the rats in the world.

DianePhotos Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2010
Sure, but if you read some comments below yours, you'll understand why these have been saved. I absolutely know snakes have to eat and "saving" a feeder rat only causes another one to dies. Though, this is not the case here as the person who bred these rats has planned to stop breeding them since she won't have snakes anymore soon from what I've understood. So these babies might have been killed yet never used to feed snakes and trashed away.

This little cutie looks like my very first hamster that had a rough but long life. She was a sickish little cutie but I did everything I could to make her life fun :heart:
