What variety is my rat/mouse?

Each rat and mouse has a special variety with it's own name. If you bought your rat or mouse from a reputable breeder, they should be able to tell you which one your rodent is. If you aren't familiar with rodent varieties, you are more than welcome to send us an email or ask on our facebook page. It helps to include photos of your rat or mouse.
