OK my last litter of ratties was ooooh soo cute found all homes except one i had to keep.. its a pure white Dumbo ear male.. at the time he had ruby eyes now it looks like his eyes are black even in the light.. can they change colors like that? And has anyone ever seen a BEW Dumbo before?

Re: BEW????

if his eyes were ruby then they have just darkened in appearance. He would have to be born black-eyed, and they are not common at all.

Yea, ruby eyes do darken up. I have a ruby eyed beige and his eyes look black now.

BEW does exist, so that's possible as well. :)

But if his eyes WERE ruby, they probably still are. ;)

If you get him in the sunlight, you will be able to tell. Black eyed rats actually have brown eyes, and it is very apparent in bright light. I also had a ruby-eyed champagne dumbo that looked like she had dark eyes until you got her into some bright light.

Take a couple of pictures using the flash. My ruby eyed rat's eyes always turn out red with the flash, even though his eyes look pitch black normally.

Yeah, I second the pics with flash. I thought one of my girls had black eyes for almost a month until I caught her with a flash, and they were definitely ruby.

BEWs are really rare, and I think it's more likely he has ruby eyes.

He is definitely very freaking adorable, whatever his eye color may be!
