The price of Pouched Rats is high for 2 reasons.

  1. We cap the prices breeders can charge at this is the level, where breeders are unlikley to be able to “profit” from breeding. Keeping Pouched Rats is expensive and realisticly, to keep enough to breed sustainably with enough unrelated animals to sustain a line is expensive. Vet Bills, food costs, cages etc will total many thousands of pounds per year.
  2. Prices are kept highier to prevent the animals being cheap enough, to become an impulse buy. This means they cost just enough, to make the decision of buying one need some thought. This also helps reinforce the ongoing cost of keeping them will is highier than the initial outlay.
