Rat Size Question

Hi everybody. I want to switch my Cali. King to rats soon and I wanted to know what size to use. She can take a small hopper right now, what rat would be equivalent to that? Thanks you.

Probably a large rat pup.

You'd want somewhere between a pinkie and fuzzy rat. A cal king will <b>MAX</b> out at a baby rat and that's a pretty big meal for a cal king.
