Well, i didn't know my neighbor had snakes until today.. His daughter brought me over a baby rat around 6-7 weeks old today saying that their snake wouldn't eat it and they know I'm a rat lover. First off why tell a rat lover you are buying friggin feeder rats.. I have her away from my current girls that I'm doing introductions on. But this girl is so sweet, and clingy little thing too. Never had a rat this young or small and I think i've fallen in love with the tiny girl, not to mention I'm glad it was a female feeder rat... i cannot breed rats here of my mom would kill me. But because of the luck that she wasn't eaten I have named her lucky, it may be a generic pet name but i believe it fits, plan on taking her to the vet some time this coming week to get her checked out for any viruses.
