He was a big grey Norway rat. I rescued his moma from someone who had bought her to feed to a snake but the snake wasn't eating here. So through a friend, I was given her. About two weeks later, she had nine babies that included Alexi. I then had 10 pet rats! As soon as I could tell, I quickly seperated the males and females.
He was named after the soccer player Alexi Lalas. He was a very good pet. He didn't mind being held. He would gently take his treats in his two front paws, just like hands.
