Betty weighs 11 ounces and is about 8 inches long not including her tail, with her tail she's about 14 inches. She is almost a year old so she's full grown (at least in length, she might get a little rounder :D ). The pictures were taken with a twelve inch stick. She wouldn't stand still long enough to get a decent picture, but hopefully they will help a little.

This is Lou, she's my biggest female (fattest too, haha)

She's not fully stretched out either, fully stretched she's maybe 9 1/2 - 10 inches (not incl. tail)

Remember though - each rat is different. I have 4 sisters, each of whom are COMPLETELY different in size. I have one almost as big as Lou, and the smallest is almost half her size. I guess you'll never know what you get until they stop growing :D

EDIT:

Betty is gorgeous by the way! XD

Hahaha...Kyrie is actually from New Brunswick. They had a terrible rat situation there and she, her sister Kamali and the rest of her litter went on a very long rat train with some dedicated rescuers to come to me. :)
