"Hi, my biology class was doing an experiment to see how milk affects the growth of female albino rats, so our class got 2 rats, at the end of the experiment our teacher wanted to know if anyone wanted to adopt one of the two, I volunteered, I do not know much about rats but I do like them a lot. What I need to know is a couple of things, do I need more than 1 rat? If it is recommended to get a second rat what breed of rat is best for a female albino? I read in several places it is best to get a second because of loneliness, replies would be great. Also, which is better, an aquarium or a barred rat cage? I think for cleaning purposes a barred collapsible cage would be best but like I said I'm not sure. A third concern is I am not 100% sure what type of bedding to use, is shaved wood from a pet store best or shredded paper? One last thing I would need to know is what kinds of accessories do I need? Do I need to get a shaded hut (the cage will not be in direct sunlight) but as they sleep during the day I figured something shaded is best, I know their teeth grow continuously so I need at least to get some wood sticks etc. Thank you for any responses to any of my questions!"
