I have no idea about rats "sorry", but as you said it well be due to him new to you.
Once he gets used to his new surrounding he may just settle more.
gosh I hope you manage to train him, that will be one big rat, send a picture I love rats although never owned one due to haveing so many cats
I have just looked up your rat on internet and very interesting did you know they rely on their smell as their eye site is very poor so if it is smelling your dog on you it could be what is making it jumpy also they have great body language to help you know what they want.. I just typed in 'gambian pouch rat'
never seen one let alone looked up about them
but if like rat, rats he should get used to you
and they get that big wow
oh my goodness he is great, looks like he has dipped his tail in some paint
hi! where did you get him?, hilary
hi! where did you get him and how much did he cost, hilary
Hi There, i own a 4 month old Gambian Pouched Rat, she is adorable and lives in a 3 storey super cage lol, unfortunatly she is very unsociable even though we get her out as much as possible but she likes being stroked around the head, neck and ears heres a pic of her She cost us £150 from loulou in combe martin
great picture loe hes lovely
thx vixy : hes a git but we love him lol.
Wow thats one expensive rat but a very nice one at that. How long do they live for? I would like an African Pygmy Hedgehog but I have been told that my Skinny Pig (hairless guinea pig) habit it too expensive, £80 per pig, never mind spending £150ish on a hedgehog! Perhaps when we move and the animals have a room of their own then I may be allowed one, lol.
He's lovely - never seen one before!
they can live upto 8 ta 10 years i want a skinny pig bad but gonna have to wait for one of me others to peg it lol.
thx elena x
You want a Skinny! I have posted some pictures of Kanika in the gallery section, she is my baby! I have two and I am hoping to expand my collection when I visit Holland later on in the year, with limited Skinnys here I think we need some 'new blood'.
Thats a pretty good age for a Rat-a-tat-tat! Remember to post plenty of pictures, I love pictures.
