Matt,
I am not yet sure what is going on with the Texas rat pictured. I bought him as a "high orange" wildcaught but to me the black on him is very reduced and light. I had a female that looked similar to him but she passed away soon after I aquired her. I am raising a few of his offspring that I will breed back to him in a few years. I will know then if he is genetic or just a light colored normal animal.

I love Texas rats. They get a bad wrap from a lot of people about being mean however most captive bred stuff is very tame and manageable. I do also have a few wild caught adults that would just assume I feed them and get the heck out of there way or they will bite. However even the mean ones calm down after some time.

As for the scaleless thay are simply awesome as adults. They color up so well as adults and are just as easy to keep and maintain as a normal Texas rat. Everyone needs a pair of them. Then again I am a sucker for texas rats so it doesnt take much for me to fall in love with one.
