Abstract
We provide hematologic (n = 34) and biochemical (n = 30) blood values for wild-caught Australian bush rats (Rattus fuscipes). Hematology values have similar range limits compared with other rat species. Biochemistry values for glucose, alanine transaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, and creatine kinase have higher maximum ranges compared with other rats.
