Pictures of Lydia

This is Lydia, who is a female rex fancy rat. She was born around 26 July 2003 and came home with us 23 August 2003.

Her name is a continuation of the series started with Elizabeth and Jane, from Shannon's favourite book, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (I liked it too). Lydia is quite playful.

Her pattern of darker markings on her back is only slightly visible at this young age. They became more prominent as she grew older and larger.
