Hey-
I'm Kelly (21, Columbus, Oh). I have 2 Girls, Milla and Margot, and 3 boys, Neil, Aidas, and Bernal. The three boys all live separately for the moment as I'm having a teensy bit of trouble introducing them.
I just got Bernal and from what I've read, I guess he's a double rex dumbo. Milla's a blonde dumbo, Margot is a black hooded standard. Neil is blonde hooded, and Aidas is ..brown.

Yeah I've had to keep some of my males and females seperated also. It started as retired and young but when we add new ones we just see which ones they get along with best and keep them thre so far its worked really well. And by the way welcome.

Aidas is brown (he's got short ticked fur, like black and brown with a white belly). Neil is really great when I play with him alone or even when the girls are out (I keep watch over them so there are no surprise litters). But when I introduced Aidas to Neil they started to squabble, even worse he attacked Bernal when he got too close to his treat. Bernal suffered a terrible gaping wound over the shoulder blades, but it miraculously already started healing a couple hours later.
I started with the girls, added Neil on and was looking for a house mate for him. Now I think Aidas and Bernal will eventually be buds and live together.
When I saw Bernal in the store I was confused at the hairless rat with hair.. has anyone seen any like that?

I went to Cinci two days ago to visit the zoo. I work at Columbus Zoo and I wanted to see if anything here was comparable. I'm from Southern California, and nothing can beat the San Diego zoo in my mind, but i wanted to make sure of that. I liked the "beautification" around the zoo and how zoo-y it was, but the exhibits were kinda small I thought, and there was no were for me to sketch the animals.

I used to have a girl that was like that, most of the hairless I've see are lighter in color but her skin was darker especially her head and she had a bunch of peach fuzz around her head. Also my male hairless Harry has the fuzz but he also has a rex brother and sister so hes just an anomily

hes probably a double rex not an anomily lol :p and if Aidas' fur is ticked hes definately an agouti, i only suggested that he could be a black because my Piggle is considered a black but she is more of a chocolate brown colour. :)
