A very clever one by the look of it. Pity it couldn't learn to flush too! LOL

Did anyone else notice it's tail? Is that a white tip or degloving?

It's a pouched rat. I saw this one already. Are Gambians and pouched the same species?

sooooooo kool. can you buy them in the uk.....
I guess you'd need a double floored rabbit hutch to house it, but most the time it'd be freerange...

It's Matisse! I've seen his videos before. He was a good rat.

Gambians are great but much different from our rats. They are illegal in the US to own. I'm not sure if they are illegal anywhere else. I would suggest anyone do very extensive research before owning a Gambian as they can be a challenge to someone who thinks they are some kind of animal they are not.

I don't know if Gambians and me would go together, but I do love seeing Matisse and his videos!

OMG! I should have read all the posts first. I was just telling my mom (who is visiting and afraid of rats) that my girls are not going to get as gigantic as she thinks. Then we watched that and she freaked! :lol: :lol:
