Today I got a very young rex rat, supposedly a male? I'm not too sure how old, the guy didn't seem to know either - I'm pretty sure it was a going to be a feeder rat. It's eating lab blocks, but since it's so young, is there anything else I should feed it to help it out? I've never had a rat this young, but I have plenty of time to take care of it and make sure it gets what it needs. Anyway, I'm just curious if anyone can tell that it's truly a male, I was planning on it being a cagemate for a slightly older rat (though still very young!) once it gets bigger. However, I know rats can breed pretty early and I don't want to be irresponsible, so I'd like to know if I need to keep him/her separated from the male rat. I'm sorry the pictures kind of bad, the baby is extremely wiggly! My phone's not too great, either. And there's so much fur, I'm having a hard time determining the sex. I can try to take more pictures if needed.
