We are a pair of bonded female rats who are looking for a new home together. We are very playful and according to our previous owner, very crafty at escaping, so our new home will need to be escape-proof and designed specifically for rats. The staff at ARL will need to see a photo of our new housing before you take us home. We will need at least an hour or two outside the cage each day, and lots of enrichment to keep us occupied. We are very curious and social but will need to work on handling. If you are interested in meeting us, please plan a visit to ARL today!
