Vibrissae(pl)

The long stiff hairs that project from the snout or brow of most mammals, as the whiskers of a cat. The long modified feathers that grow along
the gape of the mouth of insect-eating birds.

I think I'm in love with Basil!!! What a sweetheart. Zoe has always wanted guinea pigs but because we heat with wood our air temperature fluxuates a LOT and I read that they need stable warmth.......thats how we decided on rats instead.
