About Aura

Aura was born in my second Brandywine litter, and was one of fourteen littermates, eight boys and six girls. She is a stunningly beautiful doe with a sweet and cheeky temperament. Perfection in a rat.

Aura and her siblings are named after rivers of Finland, in celebration of the Finnish ancestry of their sire, Barnaby. Aura is named after the Aurajoki.
