How fantastic is this photo of the sweet insides of a pet rat's mouth? We see lips and flaps and gums and healthy orange teeth, and ohhhh that amazing tongue. Oliver Rat models his mouth in astonishing detail as he wakes up from a nap and says hello to his human. His brother Simon is nearby, and Zack hides back in the shadows. Oliver is 5 months old (January 2011) and lives in northeastern Pennsylvania. Ollie and Simon are both extremely curious and friendly and love having attention and scritching from their human companions. Oliver's favorite human is his man human, Monica's husband, Jack.
