    I bought my new boys today, with the intention of introducing them to Pancake eventually. They are called Perseus and Hercules :eek:

    Can anybody confirm their markings/colours please? Is Perseus a roan?

    I can't know for sure but yes he looks like a roan
    my rat is very similar except she's a rex and is getting lighter
    looks like the other is a hooded fawn
    I think I am right but if I'm not I am sure someone will come along a correct me

    Not sure on varieties. I would agree on the roan and hooded but not sure of the colour. BUT who cares as they are totally adorable. I LOVE your roan.:D and those ears on Hercules

    They are huge aren't they :D I said earlier to him "Gosh your ears are big" and he looked quite offended haha. Aw no they are little sweethearts, been huddled in a corner of the cage since this morning but they are starting to eat and explore a little now.

    Your boy is def a roan so he'll end up vitally White just like how one of my boys has gone.
    And I think your other one is a pale topaz.
