Rat Lifespan Survey 2 *New*

Post by aquajen9 » Thu Aug 10, 2006 11:55 am

Having looked over the previous post of 'rat lifespan' I'm interested in collecting some slightly more detailed research, which once completed (or once there is a fair amount of data), I will publish online.

Obviously this is only going to be representative of the people who take the time to post details, and of people who use the internet. It'd also be very useful if breeders who kept records would be willing to email data of rats who've passed on, that they didn't personally keep.

Details I'm looking for are..

Year Of Death:
Age:
Sex:
Variety (eg siamese dumbo rex berkshire):
Origin (eg Breeder/Rescue etc.):
Cause of Death:
Whether the rat was bred from: Y/N (and subsequently the number of litters the rat had)
Food the rat was fed on (base food and whether given fresh foods, with an example):

I know I'm asking for a fair amount of detail, especially of those with a lot of past rats, but I feel it'll be benefitial to everyone. However, I'm willing to do the yard work, and will start getting together the details of all my past rats, as well as past rats I've bred.

I don't want to use the details collected in the other post - as they'll be missing vital information that I'm attempting to collect, so even if you've previously posted over there, I could do with full info over here.

Thankyou in advance! :)

ETA. Please do not edit previous posts with new rats deaths - this will make my work very confusing!
