A basic explanation of the rat's reproductive system is useful information for both the breeder and the rat owner.

The purpose of the reproductive system is to ensure the continuation of the species.

Rats have shown a remarkable ability to survive and thrive. This, in part, is due to their ability to reproduce often and to give birth and provide nutrients to multiple offspring.

Because rats are mammals, their reproductive systems are similar to ours in many ways. The differences are interesting to note and give us insight into how the rat has been able to consistently perpetuate its own species.



The Rat Guide and its affiliates accept no responsibility for misuse or misunderstanding of its information. This guide in whole or part, exists solely for the purpose of recognizing and understanding the care and illnesses in the pet rat. Please seek advice and treatment from a qualified Veterinarian if your rat is ill.
