Lifespan: 10/11/2012 – (not yet!)
Description: Hooded Black Rex (Rex is the curly fur type)
Baloo was born on October 11th, 2012, one of eleven ratbabies. His mother, Seven, was pregnant when we bought her (unbeknownst to us). Baloo and Mowgli are very similar in appearance, and we tell them apart by spots on their underbellies- Baloo has two and Mowgli has one.
Baloo and his brothers love to play, and Baloo in particular likes to pounce around the cage. Baloo and his brothers were neutered on May 30th, 2013, so they could be integrated in with the rest of the Ratty Mischief. He was named after the character in The Jungle Book.
