    Default Third WRE 2012 pickup.

    Completely lucked out on this guy, was again the only Mandarin rat at the Expo and in addition was male! Only happened to see him on my third pass of the table he was on. Some of the people manning the table were not terribly happy about him selling. He's likely an 2011 and is a good bit bigger than our female. Also currently without a name.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much is the store wanting for them?

    That's not bad, better than I was expecting for a pet store in fact. He was $150 and the lowest lone male I'd been able to find online in the last five months or so, was $260 shipped and most of them were $300 or a bit more than that, shipped. Was also having a hard time finding someone that would let me buy just a male, wanted me to take pairs and we already had a female.

    Fed this guy for the first time yesterday and he ate right off. Love my Asian rats! They are all such enthusiastic eaters! Decided to name him Malcolm, our female is named Inara so that seemed appropriate. Snapped a few pictures when we got him out to eat.
