Might of "accidently" gotten a new rat?

:lol:

Between the names Sofia or Jasmine.

She was all alone, up for adoption at the pet shop. Couldn't just leave her there by her self! :heart::D
She's still a bit nervous, and she bit me (ouch), because she's not handtamed, and was very scared being moved twice in a short period of time (she'd only been put up for adoption recently because her cagemate died. :( )
They reckon she's roughly 4 months; she's so small!

Going to leave her to settle for the next few days, then slowly introduce my 3 rats to her.

So.. I'll make a separate post for this.
But I think she's a ruby eyed rat, and my first 3 were black eyed, so I've never seen anything like this.
However I've spotted both her eyes have a shiny area I can see when the light shines on her eyes right. Any rat owners know if it's normal for this to happen with red eyed rats?
Was worried she might have cataracts, but they seem a bit low in her eyes to be that.

Thank you everyone. :)!
She's starting to trust her surroundings a bit more, sleeping in her hammock instead of in the highest corner.
Still nips my fingers, but it's just because she's not hand tame.
We'll get there. :)
