I think it would be horrible to have such a lovely (if kinda scraggly) wildun in pet stores - let it thrive in the wild like it's been doing for gosh knows how long, I say.

BUT..that said. It is very cute :D If one landed on my doorstep one day, I don't think I'd say no

I saw that too! They would be so fun to have as a pet.....but I hope that never happens. They should just be left in the wild where they are happy.

...Am I the only one reminded of those stories of people who find little "dogs" swimming out at sea, and pull them up only to find that they're giant rats? XD

Look at how tiny it's eyes are! I wonder if it can see.
It's cute though, in a very scruffy sort of way.

these scientists and explorers have evidently never been to NYC :) Those things are freakishly likeable.

Thats not very similar to norway rat. But its still cute fluffy animal.

But I only want one, if i can put it together with my old rats. No room for a cage as big as the one i have, in my room. :lol:

Woah! That would be a little creepy to run into while exploring the jungle! They would make good cuddleing pets though! :D

well they are available over there. they are illegal in canada and the US. i would love to have one. though they are rats i guess they are quite different then our small ones. they will be really cool once they have been domesticated a bit more, right now they are still mostly considered wild living inside. i wonder if our small ones were like that when they were first being domesticated too...

Twitch They are illegal to import I thought?

You can breed and sell them just cant import them. I would love a Pouched Rat.

i thought they were illegal period. but i guess either way doesn't help, if you can't get the animal here then you can't breed them anyway.
