I'm new to rat ownership so I will defer to the experts here.

I have two female rats, still young. How big do rats get? And are females smaller than males, or the same size... or bigger?

Experts ... :oops: We wish. ;-)

Anyway, females are generally smaller than males. There is usually a decent range in weight just like with people. Less weight for those with smaller frames, etc.

I have two females and a male:

Melon (1yr old/Female) - 13 oz
Barry (5 month old/Neut. Male) - 14.5 oz <-- He is huge and I am going to end up with a rat/dog by the time he is done. :)
Kiwi (6 month old/Female) - 5.5 oz.
