Female Dumbo Rat
Best Pet Investment Ever!
Our female dumbo rats, Glinda and Dorothy, are a constant source of entertainment, learning, and love. To think that we invested so little in their purchase at Petsmart, the cost-to-delight ratio is beyond measure!
We particularly like the notion that each store will only carry one gender, so as to keep accidental breeding to an absolute minimum.
Yes, we've spent money on their housing and upkeep, but it is well worth the joy of watching them interact with each other, and us. They are as comfortable being handled as they are giving "noseboops" to our cat, Neferkiti, who is so curious about them and their antics.
From grooming each other, to hanging out in their hammocks, to searching out the "temple of goodies," (a bag of treats we hold when they are out of their cage,) they never cease to amaze and impress us with their abilities to adapt, reason, and invent new actions such as games.
Thanks, Petsmart, for stocking and carefully selecting this new and unique variant of domestic rats.

We got two dumbo rats from PetSmart and we are so happy with them. It has taken me 4 yrs to allow a pet rat into our home and now I would love to have 4-10 they are so wonderful and loving! We bought a huge 4 level cage, so plenty of room for 2 rats to play. They love to be held and kissed and played with. We are so happy with our purchase and thank PetSmart for bringing the happiness into our home! I don't EVER regret my decision to let me son get his rat and then I had to get mine. LOVE THEM!!!!

Sweetest pets ever!
I adopted two female dumbo rats, and I am completely happy with them. They love their new cage, and love to play! Since I got them as babies, they are a bit skittish to being held. The store lady let me hold them before buying, and they never bought me at all. I wouldn't recommend letting them out of their cages this young, my ran from my hand and under my dresser. We got her out with her new favorite treat, and deposited her back in her cage. The white one, Tjuven, sneezed a lot coming home. It quit after a while, and she is now perfectly happy and healthy. ^-^

I would highly recommend Dumbo rats to anyone looking for a very docile and friendly, small pet! I am a teacher and always have these loving critters in my classroom!
