Hooded

 

Description

 

A Hooded rat has a colored head, shoulders, chest and down the spine in an unbroken line to and encompassing the tail. The most common faults on a Hooded rat are a white stripe on the chest/chin, and a broken, spotty hood along the back. The rest of the body should be pure white, without mottled edges or spotting.

 

Genetics

 

h/h

 

A double-recessive on the Hooded (H) locus. This marking also shares genetics with Bareback, Varigated, Capped and Masked rats, but without the extra white modifiers.

 

Standards

 

AFRMA

"Hooded rats may be shown in any recognized color. The sides, legs and feet should be a pure clean white, free from spots or brindling. The hood should cover the head, neck and shoulders without a break, showing no white on the throat or chin, and should run in an even line around the body. The spine marking should extend in an unbroken line from the hood to the tail, be of moderate width, and be free of ragged edges or brindling. The tail should be colored at the base, then white to the end."

 

RSA

"The sides, legs and feet should be a pure, clean white free from spots or brindling. The hood should cover the head, neck and shoulders without a break, showing no white on the head, throat or chin, and should run in an even line around the body. The spine line should extend in an unbroken line from the hood to the tail, be of moderate width and be free of ragged edges or brindling. The tail should be colored at the base, then white to the end. The color shall conform to a recognized color."

 

RatsPacNW

"Colored hood that covers the head, neck, chest, and shoulders with white front feet.  The body to be white with  a spine mark that extends from the hood to the tail.  The stripe should be symmetrical and unbroken.  Color should extend partially down tail."

 

URS

"Rat should have a white body, with a hood of any recognized color, which COVERS the head, neck, throat, chest and shoulders, with no breaks or white spots in the color. Color continues in an unbroken line or stripe from the hood's center between the rat's shoulders, down the rat's spine to the base of the tail, with as much of the tail as possible being colored. Spine stripe should be of moderate width ( 1/4" to 1" ) and as straight and even as possible, without ragged edges or brindling. There should be no spots of color or brindling on the white portions of the body. In pale colored rats, a pale colored throat and chest is to be allowed.

Faults: Ragged edges on hood or spine stripe, spots of color or brindling in the white areas, breaks in color of hood or spine stripe; spine stripe not extending to the base of tail."
