Giving your rats just the peanut assertions from the pet store isn't the healthiest. Giving them your own healthy snack sometimes is better. About a few times a week it is healthy to give your rat fruits and vegetables, instead of rat food that day. But you have to be careful about what kinds of fruits and vegetables you give them. Never give them anything cooked or deep fried, it is to fattening and unhealthy. Its better to give them raw fruits and vegetables. Like broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, bananas, anything healthy. But there are somethings you should be more careful about, if you know that a certain fruit or vegetable has high acids that can upset the human stomach you probably shouldn't give that fruit or vegetable to your rat, like mangoes. Some rats also get upset stomachs easily, so if you have a rat and you try to give it a fruit and they get sick, make note of it and don't feed them that again. When rats are older they can get sick more easily, even an upset stomach can get real bad and lead to extreme sickness and even death when rats are adults. So also be careful of what you feed them. Carrots are also another good food. Rats also love uncooked pasta. Keep your rat healthy, and please leve comments. NO EMAIL ADDRESS REQUIRED!!!
If you don't think rats are necessarily the pet you are looking for, but want a pet similar to a rat, I would look into a chinchilla. This link is great for the history of chinchillas, and is really interesting.
