I rescued two rats today from an owner surrender. I picked the mother and the largest baby which was twice as big as all the other babies.
I'm wondering when you can tell whether a rat is male or female? I was told that this baby is a female and it certainly doesn't look like a male yet but I want to be sure. She said the babies were somewhere between 1-2 months in age. Like I said this rat is huge by comparison to the others so would size make a difference?
on a different note, the mom has one pink/red eye and one black! Can't wait to show pictures. I've never seen that before!
