Rex Velveteen
Standard Ears

Ocean is such a nice rattie. Very monkeyminded and licky too! I can hardly wait until he gets old enough to pair up with Ping Pong. They are both beautiful monkeyminded ratties and will produce some lovely babies.

Ocean has a gently wavy rex fur commonly known as velveteen or teddy rex, depending on which part of the country you are from. The Eastern side of the United states usually calls this fur teddy rex and the Western velveteen, both mean the same thing, that the fur is not top quality for a rex rat. A good quality rex rat will have very curly whiskers and tight curly fur. Genetically speaking, some breeders are trying to prove that the velveteen fur is a new mutation of the rex gene, not just a poor example of a rexed rat.

Speaking of genetics I've been trying to understand how they effect the different markings within a fancy rat. I've discovered that ratties can resemble the look of a certain marking visually, but genetically be a different marking. This is caused by genetic modifiers and the effects of spotting genes. It is all complex and confusing. But physically little Ocean looks much like the marking known as the capped marking, but genetically he is really something totally different like a mismarked bareback or even a mismarked hooded. I've learned that in raising ratties what you see isn't always what you get.

Update: 07/22/09 Ocean has now joined his friend Cloud. Ocean passed away peacefully of old age. He was a good old guy and lived a long happy life!Update: 03/26/09 His health is excellent you would never know that he is two and a half years old.

As of 11/12/06 His health is excellent.
