Re: Taking outside - asking for trouble?

unless you have a really shouldery and fat rat, no way to get the harness around!

Depending of the rat caractere, you can just keep it on you, they tend to hide in you hoodies / pockets anyway, and just keep a close look at them, they don't fly usually ;)

Re: Taking a rat camping..

Rat sitting is the solution IMO, too much incertainity for camping with rats, especially "sick" ones. You would have 2 rats, really used to human and travelling, you may have been able to do it easily, but that doesn't seems faire to me in this case...up to you though!

Re: colour? roan?

Not sure, as the picture may get the little guy paler than he is, but doesn't seem like a roan to me, they are usually darker when younger and the color is not as neat... could be wrong though!
