May 28, 2007 - Pancho
has been tagged by Liesje
from the Webratjes, which scared
the hell out of him when I told him. Just like his penpal
he apparently thought this involved some medieval procedure in which a tag
would physically be attached to one of his ears (or worse). But once I
explained to him that this was just a silly game, in which "we"
at this website never would take part, he insisted on playing.
May 22: Pancho enjoying a bit of apple
And so here it is, for Pancho and all other taggers out
there, 7 random / most important facts about Pancho:
- Pancho was
named after the Mexican revolutionary
because he wears a permanent bandit's mask on his face.
- Pancho is relatively the
heaviest rat of my
pack. At the age little more than 6 months he is
already past 610 grams. That's even slightly heavier than his cage mate
Dylan was when he was 6
- Pancho's nickname is
"Pannetje", which is Dutch for "little pan".
- Pancho was born a rattery rat, but nevertheless has no pedigree. Dylan
often pesters both Pancho and his brother
Lefty with this.
- Pancho escapes from his cage every morning
by jumping from the upper door down unto the couch about 30 cm
- Pancho is a fast eater with a big appetite. When he has finished his
treat he will gladly steal the treat from one of his
- Pancho can scream
like a girl when he only thinks he's under attack.
I won't tag anyone else, everybody I know was probably
already tagged anyway.
