A Bit About Jackalhead

Welcome to Jackalhead Rattery, where rats are royalty. My name is Michele and I own Jackalhead Rattery.

Jackalhead is located in Joostenbergvlakte, Cape Town and was established in January 2007. Although I had other 'local' rats, my first pedigree fancy rat was Runebound Anubis, a Himalayan Berkshire Dumbo buck. His grandparents were among the first pedigree rats to be imported from the USA by Moonstones Rattery.

My goal is to breed fancy rats with exceptional health and temperaments, followed by good colour and type. My rats are only bred from 7 months and upwards, to determine health and temperament. All kits are tame and handled from a very early age.


I breed a variety of colours, markings, coat and ear types.


I also offer a boarding service for rat owners going on holiday. 

Please note that Jackalhead Rattery is a "closed" rattery and is not open for public visits and viewing. This is for personal privacy (as my rattery is located within my home) and bio-security reasons.
