Hello everyone! I am new to rats and I think I've come to the right place... I also have one dog, three cats, eight guinea pigs, a hamster, five frogs, four mice, three leopard geckos, and two fisktanks! My chameleon passed away this week , but my guinea pig is due to give birth this week as well so I'm happysad... And I'm very excited about my rats because they are one of the only animals I have never had before and I have heard wonderful things about their intelligence and playful personalities. I'm a photographer going to school at RIT in Rochester, NY, so expect some high quality photos as soon as my rats are comfortable with me and the camera. Cheers!
