A Chat About Rats Leave a Comment / Feeding, Rodents / By email@example.com The episode of Fauna Paradigm “A Chat About Rats”. In this episode I speak with Savanna from Australia about her pet rats. You will see more about the rats in the ‘Obituaries’ section of this website, very unfortunately. Rats make great pets! They’re intelligent, friendly and loving. The consistent complaint about pet rats is that they do not live long enough.
