Well that was a quick response
Like a rat? Hmm thats cool..Does it act like a rat?
no they are actually quite shy and friendly. they take sand baths by rolling around in a sand house if you get them one. they can jump up to 6ft, and you have to keep fur tuffs and knots out of their fur or they can get stressed. they can sometimes attempt to bite you if you be too harsh with them. getting a bite is painful as they have strong teeth, and can pierce human skin. also, they can't sweat, so you have to keep them cool. 25c and above can cause heat stroke.
so they are more or less the desert equivalent to a field mouse or rat.
