I'm no rat expert, so take what I say with a grain of salt. But he looks like one of boys we got tonight, and I think he qualifies as a "pink eyed white" (aka, PEW). From what I understand, albinos have a lighter shade of pink/red eyes, which are technically clear, but the blood vessels make them look pink. PEWs are supposed to be a tad "darker" over all. Hopefully someone with more expertise will weigh in soon.

Beautiful baby boys, by the way! :)

Ember is a champagne, it's a pink eyed dilute, and a pale cream color. Two handsome guys!

took the ratties outside today! ( i know the cage looks small but its their travel / safe spot cage) since ber and dante have been getting good with their names id see how they did outside in our safe spot and it went well they searched the area down and found all the hidden treats we had for them so here's some pics!
