    I bought some dried figs for myself but I really don't care for them. Does anyone know if they are okay for my male rats? Thanks!

    If they are just dried figs a tiny piece would be okay but if they have a lot of sugar do not give them to your rats! Check the package for how much sugar is in them. Also figs are notorious for helping move your bowels so if you give them too much fig they might get diarrhea.

    some people give very small amounts of dried fruit, but only small amounts because they contain so much sugar
    There is a link to the forbidden foods list in the Reference Thread

    Personally I would not give them to rats
