    Do you know how big hairless rats get?  I got my guy last month but I'm not sure how old he is. ...

    I think he's a juvenile (he's only @ 5 inches long).  I would like to get him a pal but don't want to have fighting.  Got any tips on aging a hairless rat?

    They average the same size as regular, furred rats. It's hard to tell the age unless you know the breeder that it came from. Rats grow at different paces, and you'll find that some are larger than others that may be smaller. I had a female that stopped growing at 6 months and was smaller than her cagemates. It's just hard to tell how old they are unless you know the breeder.
