Did you know that rat meat costs four times more than chicken or pork and twice that of beef in China? We rescued this elderly bamboo rat who had severe malocclusion and set up a trail camera to make sure he was recovering well after treatment. We were pleasantly surprised to find that he was very active and renovating his new home all night long! He may not be the most glamorous animal we have here, but he’s very good at walking backwards and falling over when grooming himself. At 8 years old, he is still in great shape as their usual life expectancy is just 5 years. May his remaining time in retirement with us be peaceful and merry. Big or small, we treat them all!
