My brother has a rat Carmen and Indego and Indegos tail is kinda black but Carmens tail is a little bit black the next day Carmems tail was just like Indoges she the oldest anyway so I think since Carmen is younger than Indego Carmen is growing rats tails change color because of age

Expertise

I can answer any rat-related questions including feeding, housing, breeding, showing, genetics, health, and behaviour. I am a veterinary assistant and though I cannot answer in-depth health questions I am familiar with the most common ailments and treatments for rats. I have owned rats for 10 years and have been breeding them for 5 and have studied everything about them that I can get my hands on. I currently run my own rat care website at http://careguide.evergreenrattery.com and have been answering rat and other rodent questions via email and IM for several years now.
