Iowa was a black eyed himalayan and the son of Seven. Iowa was destined to be an alpha rat from the moment he was born. One of the largest in the litter, he soon became leader of the group, following in his father's footsteps.

Iowa was much like his dad in many ways. He was a very large rat and had the same body type as his dad.
I came home to find Iowa dead in his cage one day. He had been perfectly healthy the day before, and I will never really know why he died. There is a possibility it was a sudden stroke, or even diabetes. It seems he just died in his sleep.

Why Iowa? Simple, Iowa was yet another Slipknot reference. The band themselves come from Iowa, and they have a song and album of the same name.
