SARBU is the oldest fancy rat breeder group in South Africa and was established after the 2005 rat import by Liesl Hatting of Moonstones Rattery.

Although SARBU breeders have always focused on the correct care of rats and breeding ethics, the focus has shifted from breeding rats to supply the pet market to primarily becoming an educational group, improving the lives of pet rats through correct care, enrichment and husbandry.

The SARBU Rattipedia aims to educate pet owners and hobby breeders with free, correct and up to date information.
