Some people look at me crazy when I say I breed rats in my snake room. They look at me even crazier when I say I keep them in a cabinet. Here's the second version of my rat cabinet finally finished. Well, there are a few more tweaks but they are hard to notice in the video Twisted Evil

I think that is much better than the first one. The vent will keep the smell out and give the rats fresh air. I would worry that no light cycle might make them go off breeding. I'm interested to hear how it works out.

RC 1.0 never had any breeding issues without light. I think they are nocturnal too.

It's suppose to draw air from the bottom but I have to get some smaller hinge screws. The carpet gasket would seal tighter then.

That's awesome, I'm sure it will cut down on the smell.

What happened to RC 1.0?

thats a nice setup. how bad does the smell permeate the room? does the enclosure keep the smell relatively low?
