Okay rat enthusiasts, what do I need to know beyond the obvious to raise a friendly/healthy pet rat?
Any recommendations or tips on how to purchase a pet rat, what do I look for in selecting a healthy rat? Is it best to start with a baby that you can hand raise? What age can they leave the mother? Are there differences between male/females? Are there variations in breed or color or temperament differences I should be aware of?
What type of habitat is the best for a pet rat? Shavings for bedding? How do rats like to exercise? What is the best diet for a pet rat? What do you provide for the chewing and do they need teeth trimmed?
