Mr. Biggs and Picasso were two of our weirder but more endearing pets. They're just like regular rats, lovable, affection and intelligent but they do require more care. Because they're hairless, they need a more gentle environment as they can be easily scratched and hurt themselves.
Wire cages need to be checked to make sure there are no sharp edges and all toys should be of a softer nature. If your hairless does get scratched Neosporin is an easy fix to make sure their cuts can heal up quickly.
If you're not weirded out by rats, and on top of that hairless creatures, then they're a great pet but if you just think they're cool then I would choose a different pet. Rats, while technically self-sufficient, really do need affection, socializing and adventure time.
