A sweet little special needs rat named Pan eagerly chomped on a cracker that was almost as big as himself while hanging upside down, cradled in the comfort and safety of his human’s hands. When Pan was a baby, his human rescued him from a snake and provided him with a safe, happy home for the rest of his life.
Pan is my special needs rat who is 3 years old. I saved him from being eaten by a snake when he was only 5 weeks old. He has had seizures and other issues his whole life. He cannot climb or act like a normal rat, and is very sweet and more mellow than most pet rats which is why he enjoys eating upside down…He was born with a condition that was diagnosed by a small animal vet with 30 years of experience. It is described as being similar to Down syndrome in humans.
Pan also enjoys eating banana chips in the very same manner.
