Large breeds? Lol there is only one kind and size of rat. They all grow to the same size. They are labeled (small, medium, large) in pet stores because they are often used to feed snakes. The small are just babys, the medium are actually adolescents, and the large are adults ;P


Edit: ACTUALLY there are dwarf rats but those are pretty rare to come across.

Are the two cages connected or separate? If they are separate the smaller one is a tad small (not much climbing with one level) but not to bad and the bigger one is awesome. If they are connected it's double awesome ;D

It is probably a ferret cage unfortunately. A lot of cages sold are not right for any animals. That cage is far to small for a ferret! Ferrets and rats love to climb and should really have multi-level cages. However for your one lone boy it isn't to bad as long as you give him lots to interact with or maybe even make a second level. Why is the boy alone though?

Really? Have you tried having him neutered? Sometimes that works as a last resort. Can help any aggression towards you as well.

Lol well yeah just like people right? Some boy rats are unusually petite.. some girls are unusually big. Some rats are just small/large. But I thought you meant there were different types of rats that reach different sizes XD
