About Male Rats
Generally, male rats get along well with other male rats, especially if they are introduced at a young age or are littermates. When rats are handled from an early age, keeping them in groups doesn’t make them harder to tame. Pets like them do not require low maintenance, but they are relatively easy to take care of. At least one hour a day should be devoted to exercise and attention outside of their cages. There is a general difference in size and laziness between males and females, as well as coarser fur on males. In general, females are smaller and more active than males.
Pet Rats: Choosing one
Do not handle rats that seem panicky when handled, especially if they do not relax quickly, or those that seem overly quiet and calm (they may be ill). A rat that feels comfortable around you is usually a good choice. It is important for rats to be alert and active. It is important for the rat’s body to be firm and well rounded. The leanness of young rats tends to increase as they get older. Ensure that your nose, eyes, ears, and rear end are clean and free of discharge. The coat of a healthy rat should be clean and well groomed. Pink and clean skin should cover the ears and tail. Sores should not be present on the skin, nor should it be red or flaky. Ensure the rat does not sneeze or have discharge from its nose or eyes (all signs of respiratory disease, which is common in rats). Watch its breathing to ensure it is not labored.
