I def prefer top ears, not to say anything bad about dumbos, just not my cuppa! I love silver fawns, varis, essex, hoodies. Badgers are a fave too, so basically, marked rats!!!! I have a silver fawn, topaz vari and cinny vari coming at the weekend, v excited!!! But really, i think if you can look past colour and look at individual temperments, thats just as appealing. I had a breeder say, never overlook the plainer rats, they are usually incredibly sweet, so i think you can have the best looking rat ever, but if its a total bar steward, its not that attractive.

I LOVE Dumbos. Dumbos ftw. Not that there's anything wrong with top ears though. :D I also like black rats, and the agouti hooded ones.

I like dumbos :dumbo: :hearts: it's hard to choose a favourite variety but I apparently have a 'thing' for roans :lol: I think my absolute favourite is agouti/mink roan, closely followed by himilayans and black-eyed siamese. I like smooth coat too but I just adore rex, they look like teddybears and I'd love to own a rex or two one day :wink: At the moment my dream rat is a curlywurly black-eyed siamese :hearts:
Black berkies are cute too ooh and I think essex is stunning. Cinnamon is a really pretty colour and I really like burmese too :)
That's not to say I dislike top ears, smooth coats or agoutis or hoodeds of course :D

Black Eyed Russian Blue Point Siamese and Black in top ear and smooth coats are my favourites :) After that it'll be black berkshire perferably with a blaze as well, followed by splodgy things - though I'd have to fight Midnight Rose for the black ones ;)

As you asked for pictures - black eyed russian blue point siamese

I love top-eared, my mum loves dumbos. :lol: I love smooth fur. All the markings are beautiful, but I do love variegated and hooded markings. And I love any colour except black or agouti.

I'm a sucker for a rex. They really are like little bears :p I also have a fondness for the more common colours like champers, agouti (especially hooded) and black because of special past rats. Oh and smeezers, I :hearts: my smeezers! I really want a cinnie and a PEW one day. And I do like blues.
As far as ears go, I don't really have a preference, although I happen to be overrun with dumbos atm :lol:

Ruby eyed Siamese and Agouti. closely followed by Black eyed Siamese, Red and Black eyed Himalayan, PEW, Black, Topaz, Variegateds, Badgers and RBPS. I love Rexes and Smooths. I could live without Dumbos, but they're cute.

To be honest I don't want to pick one love.. :lol:
