FURRY FRIDAY (ON SATURDAY)
AFRICAN PYGMY MICE are the smallest rodents in the world.
At 2" fully-grown long they're the length of a roborovski hamster, yet far slighter in body. Meaning some beetles are actually bigger than these mice!
They're popular with the pet trade because they're very social and just like roborovskis love climbing on top of one another.
They love mousing around:
Shy by nature (just like roborovskis) they can, with patience, become hand-tame:
Like all rodents, the babies are born blind and utterly naked. They resemble "baked beans with paws" ...
Here you can see how tiny and cute an African pygmy mouse mother with babies looks ~ coo!
