    HAHA I love rats I had one named Raider once!

    But truth be told hairless rats kind of creep me out. So does hairless anything that's normally fluffy.

    Kool, i wouldn't mind getting hairless rats again...if only i could find some.

    If you are planning on breeding them you will need a normal rat bred at the same time to nurse the babies from the hairless because they can't lactate.
