Vari is Variegated - it is a marking.

They have colour on their head/neck/shoulders, and have splodges of colour on their backs. They have either a headspot or a blaze.

Like so -

Varis are beautiful. I used to have one, but she died last year.

They're probably mismarked hoodies. I thought Snippet was a hoody for ages, but when I joined this forum I was told hoodies can't have blazes and she was a vari.

I thought you could get blazed, bareback, mismarked or a perfect hoody but I might be making things up :roll:

All pet rats are the same breed, the colours and markings are varieties.
