MBLU Rescue Center
Mouse the rat was received into MBLU Rescue on 7/18/16
Mouse was about 9 days old and thought to be a Rattus rattus (Rr). I had never had very young Rr and they do look a lot the same at eye opening age. As Mouse grew, I knew something looked a bit different than the young Rr I had raised before. After about 6 weeks it was determined that Mouse is actually a Desert Woodrat.
Mouse still lives with his foster mom MBLU Reba who is a standard ear agouti Norway Rat (common domestic rat).
