Dumbo Rat Info
A dumbo rat is a regular domestic rat, belonging to the same species as all other pet rats, but with a mutation that produces larger and wider ears, placed low on the head compared to other rat breeds. This particular variety of rats first originated in Northwest America and was first discovered back in 1990s. The first dumbo rats on the scene were the Siamese dumbos that were soon followed by a wide variety of dumbos. Today, dumbo rats are available in almost every combination of colors and markings such as the blue dumbo rat and hairless dumbo rat.
To this date, there has been no real scientific study on the interesting mutation of dumbo rats and no published documents have been released on the subject. However, it has been pointed out that the said mutation is caused by a recessive gene.
