Giant Cloud Rat Care
Cloud Rat Handling:
This is where it gets a bit interesting. You are best off not handling
Cloud Rats by their tail. Cloud Rats have the ability to break of their
tail similar to reptiles. You are advised to handle the Cloud Rat by grasping
mid body. If you have an animal that is not very tame, be cautious to
not stress the animal which can result in shock to the animal, as well…
they are capable of giving a pretty hearty bite.

You will feed your Northern Luzon Giant Cloud Rat or Southern Luzon Giant
Cloud Rat mostly fresh greens such as dandelion, Chinese cabbage, grasses
and clover. You can also supplement with Hay and veggies/fruits such as
carrots, celery, parsley, apples, cucumber, romaine lettuce but avoid
the sweeter fruits other than as rare treat. Never offer seeds or seed
