You know those russian silvers I've been having trouble placing? I mentioned how a family turned them down because they looked like PEWs. Well somebody that doesn't care about looks expressed interest in two of them. I hope they put on the charm and get adopted

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

But don't Russian silvers have black eyes?

No. Russian blues have black eyes. Russian silvers have pink\red eyes. Actually, these rats aren't russian silver. I see points so I think they are either russian dove point or russian platinum point siamese. In any case, the person adopted a russian dove (kinda looks like a blue)

Now I'm sure you know a lot more than I on this topic, but I checked a couple of websites and found a couple that claim they have black eyes...

is there more than one sub-variety or something?

Well, at least you got an adoption out of it. Hope the little munchkins find homes soon!

Well, firstly, one of those sites is european. I might be mistaking the color for something else, but I have seen rats labeled "russian silver" where they have red eyes...actually I think they were mislabeled since I looked in other places and, yeah they look like they have black eyes.
Oh well :P

I'm sure they're very cute at any rate, and nothing like PEWs!

Russian Silvers actually look like American Blueish (maybe a shade or so lighter) with white heathering that looks like ticking. I had one at the show.

Yeah I realised it. My friend has been going these rats "russian whites". They are probably just an extreme russian platinum.
