These rats are actually 2 males from a litter one of our females had in november 2011. Their owner, Lynn, who got them from us came back for a visit recently to let us see how big they are now that they are coming up for a year old.
Such lovely big boys they have turned out to be. Their father was our big boy Raziel who recently died so getting to see them again and play with them was great. I miss their father Raziel loads.
Hope you like Fred & Barney also.
To show you the difference in their size from when they were first given to their new owner.. here is a link to a photo I took of one of them back then.. lol
Big squishy Raziel takes a moment to wash his feet while resting in his daddy's hand. He doesn't have a tumor by the way, that's just the way his skin and chubbiness is sitting lifted against John's fingers.
**Raziel died a week after this was taken, he took a sudden downturn and became very ill, we chose to end his discomfort and I took him to the vet to be sent to sleep. I got to hold him as he faded away, it was quick and very sad but it was the best for him ultimately.**
