    • Description

      Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

      Rats are highly intelligent, loyal and one of the most under-rated small animal pets. Rats are easily tamed pets that thrive on interaction and bond with their pet parent. They are social and are best kept in same-sex pairs. Rats are playful and enjoy a variety of toys and activities such as exercise wheels and anything that encourages climbing and exploration. Like other small animals, a rat's teeth grow continuously throughout their life, so they should be provided with chew sticks to prevent them from becoming over-grown. The types of rats available include Dumbo, Hairless, Hooded, Albino, Siamese and endless other color variations. There's sure to be a rat suited to meet your physical preferences, and its personality is sure to win your heart!

      • - Rats regulate their temperature through their tails.
      • - The first rat to become an astronaut traveled into space from France in 1961!
      • - Unlike the common misconception, rats are incredibly clean and docile animals.
