Definitely new to Rats. I've had my first which I was told was a Blue Dumbo, for about a month. She is absolutely amazing, hyper as he'll. She has been very social right off the bat, knows the sounds of all her treat bags and food, and gets handled for hours a day. I just picked up my second, which it was told was a "double Rex hooded x dumbo" although with my experience with pet stores I have learned to doubt them. She is so much calmer than my first, who's name is Zari (Zariel, the lion princess.) and I have yet to get a name for the second. I have so far loved my experience with rats, they are so social, so friendly, so adventurous, and have such funny personalities. So far they are the second rodents I have had.
