There are a clever new duo in Pets Corner. Have you met Elsa and Anna? These two adorable youngsters are our Dumbo Rats, a breed of fancy rat known named for their large, low-set ears. The two sisters are settling in well to Pets Corner and can often be seen greeting visitors (between naps!).

You can find out more about Dumbo Rats and other fancy varieties from the National Fancy Rat Society.
