The curly/wavy coat in rats is called a 'rex' coat. There are also 'double rexes' that are also called patchwrok hairless meaning their fur tends to grow in and out in odd patches and patterns.

I want one, my dad doesn't like their coarse hair, maybe he'd like those fluffy ones. xD

Not all rex coats are the same, you have various types and various names called by many people for them. Some just call them all rex. I have heard the term rex, double rex, patch work rex, veleteen rex, satin rex and teddy bear rex.

I call my longer fluffy coated rex's teddy bear as it fits them best, and patchwork is double rex were two rex parents are behind the litter. I only like to bred my teddy bear rex to non rex and produce the teddy bear look. I have 2 double rex girls and they are 98% naked and most people think they are bald/hairless rats but they are in fact doubled up on the rex gene.

Here are a few newer shots of some other Teddy rex's I own.



I will share some more teddy rex pictures later this week they are lovely as babies the thick curly long soft coats are my fav! :wink:

Thanks for looking

This is a double rex. She is one of my girls but I dont plan to own any other double rex's after falling for the teddy bear rex types.

She goes from looking like this to having no hair except on her feet and nose. This is the most coat she has ever had 8O

Teddy Bear Rex...Thats what they where talking about! My mom was at Petco and she heard the people talking about "Teddy Bear Rats". They where saying they are rats specificly bred to be bigger. They mentioned nothing about them being "rex". I guess they didn't have all their facts straight.

Anywho's, your rats are lovely!
