The White German Mouse or "Fancy Mouse" are beloved pets with a history of domestication spanning thousands of years!The fancy mouse is the domesticated subspecies of the house mouse, which is found all over the world. Fancy mice have been selectively bred by humans for hundreds, perhaps even thousands of years. These small rodents are relatively easy to keep as pets and can be bred for different colors, coat patterns, and more. Fancy mice can be purchased for just a few dollars at almost any pet store. Their naturally short life span makes fancy mice an attractive pet for families that want to avoid long commitments.
Fancy mice are kept and sold in pet stores all over the world. They are the domesticated subspecies of the house mouse, which originated in the Palaearctic region, but has since spread across the globe thanks to its close association with humans. Today, fancy mice are as likely to be found in a cage in a child’s bedroom as they are in the home of a breeder and collector.
Fancy mice have been bred for generations to live in captivity. They are a thoroughly domesticated subspecies, and they cannot survive long in the wild. Therefore, the fancy mouse habitat is a purely artificial one, provided and maintained by humans.
Fancy mice are undeniably cute, with their small bodies, large rounded ears, and tiny, whiskered snouts. However, some people do find their twitching noses, beady eyes, and long, nearly naked tails a bit frightening. Fancy mice are measured from their nose to the base of their tail where it joins to their body. They average between 2 and 3 inches in length, although show mice may be just slightly larger. Most fancy mice kept as pets weigh between about 1 and 1.6 ounces. Show mice can be considerably larger, weighing up to 4.6 ounces. This is due to selective breeding for larger size, not just obesity. The tails of show mice can be 5 to 6 inches long.
- People have kept pet mice since as early as 1,100 B.C.
- Fancy mice have been popular pets in Europe since the 1600s.
- With all the recognized coat types, colors, and markings, there are hundreds of selectively bred combinations of fancy mice.
- Fancy mice derived from the common house mouse, but they now differ in many ways.
- A fancy mouse can fit through tiny crevices because it has no collar bones.
- Fancy mice drink very little each day. They can get most of their moisture through fresh fruits and vegetables.
