An unexpected surprise!

Back in March of this year we were looking to adopt some new pet rats. From a Craigslist ad we ended up adopting what we thought were 4 male rats... unfortunately, I should have trusted to sex them myself to make sure of their gender, but I was trusting & did not. 

When we got home we found out we had actually ended up with 2 girls and 2 boys. Two of the rats were around 4 months old (Leela & Earl), and the other two were around 3 weeks old (Chai & Lulu). The older ones had been housed together, & I was worried the female might be pregnant.... well, a week later on March 24th, 2017; Leela gave birth to 9 babies!
