The rat in this image is Dave (she's a girl;-) Here she is about 5-6 weeks old.
After a some what stressy start (the 3 yr old would not leave them alone...) they have grown into a fine pair of young rats. Their cage and run area is constantly evolving as they become tamer and we think of new things to make for their amusement.
This exercise is in part a Home Ed project centered on Health and Physical Ed, with forays into Tech and Science.
But really I got them because I felt outnumbered and needed some female pets to even up the gender balance in the house;-)

Some fun with Queen and Acid-Base reactions:
Actually there are a number of useful video podcasts on this site made
by Perth Chemistry Teacher, Richard Meagher. The podcasts are aimed at
Yr 11 & 12 level.
