Cloud rats usually give birth to one infant so we were shocked, a year ago, when our two little arrivals made an appearance. Unfortunately, their mum struggled to rear them and did not have enough milk for the pair. I therefore had to step in and feed them every couple of hours throughout the day and night.

I am on โ€˜cloud 9โ€™ that all the hard work paid off and, now that they are one, Rain and Storm are fully grown and eat a diet of leafy greens, vegetables, browse and the occasional fruity treat.

Northern Luzon slender-tailed cloud rats are one of the worldโ€™s largest species of rat measuring 40cm in length (not including their long tail).

Our little family of cloud rats donโ€™t join us for our interactive animal education sessions as they are much too shy but we absolutely adore them!
