Rat

Rats are intelligent, highly social animals and are normally active at night and dawn and dusk. They have an excellent sense of touch, and have a wonderful sense of smell. Provided their needs are met, rats are incredibly rewarding animals to look after and can form close human-animal bonds with their carers.

There are several different kinds of rat, varying mainly in colour. Usually, rats live for around 2 years, but some may live for longer. Although this may appear a short time in comparison to other pet animals, owning rats is still a big responsibility and commitment. Rats have complex needs and are not easy to look after well.
