Some information to consider

  • They are not happy if they do not have other soft fur rats with them, the more in your group,         the better but the advised ratio is at least two.
  • They live in large colonies in the wild and they are happier in larger colonies though just               keeping a couple is acceptable.
  • The best way to pick up a soft fur rat is by the base of its tail, they are more apt to nip or bite        when grasped  from behind.
  • Soft fur rats are strictly nocturnal, you will rarely see them out in the day.
  • As for odor - ASF produce little to no odor unlike domesticated fancy rats/mice.

Disclaimer: ASF are NOT pets. Although the "can" be tamed, here, they are bred for the sole purpose of feeding Greenbean and other Ball Pythons in the Central Illinois & surrounding areas. Please keep in mind that IF you contact us looking for a pet rat, you will be told we do not raise PETS. We raise FEEDERS.
