So Introductions are in order. I am the proud co owner of two female dumbo rats. I bought them for my daughter and she gets supervised play time with them. She is 9 and does really well and our whole family loves spending time with them. My wife will often take them into the bedroom and watch tv and play with them in the evening. They are both friendly and affectionate. My daughter loves them so much and none of us can pass by their enclosure without stopping to talk to them. We've had them for about 4 or 5 months now and I couldn't be happier with their personalities.
