LOL! In this picture you can see how his arms are losing hair! His chest is bald too, we still dont know why, but his fur comes and goes. We thought it was from rough grooming since the balding is in the area where each rat grooms each other. We checked for mites but thats not the prob either! The last time we had Bob checked out the vet had no idea either, but it doesnt seem to bother him at all and all we can do is keep an eye on him. lol

Just hearing that right there I think 'barbering!'

I don't think it's technically a bad thing unless they chew on the skin....-shrug-
