It is a lovely colour Am tempted to mate that russian buff doe you gave me, might get russian topaz from her... But I really should try a bit harder with the creams (not breeding atm, sigh) so they can perhaps get seen a bit more.
Great looking critters. It would be great to have pet rats, but I live in Alberta, Canada. They are banned here. The government and farmers are committed to keeping this a rat-free province. There are even patrols along the borders ready to swoop in and kill and rat that manages to sneak it. Only labs and universities can have them . . . and that's for experimental purposes. So, I'm jealous of those who can keep rats.
