How is this for a red rat. It was 3.75 pounds.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I only get these red ones out of a couple small streams and ponds that feed them. Not sure what causes the red. It always comes to mind that there might be an iron (ferrous) influence, but don't see anything in the soil that indicate it.

I got a bunch of reds out of one colony. No iron in the area. Really pretty rats.

Beautiful color and size!
The last red rat was long ago for me. Have not seen one for too long.
