Default My newest addition!

While the gecko was planned well in advance...this little thing was very much unplanned.

Meet Lis the mouse She's named after Elisabeth Sladen (RIP ), the actress behind DW's Sarah Jane Smith.




We did a project in my animal behavior class today studying learning in mice. Afterwards we had a dozen mice and a dozen people, so pretty much everyone took a mouse home. I have no idea how old she is, but she's TINY - 10 grams. She's just a feeder mouse, but she's adorable and quite calm for a mouse (most I've met have been nippy, she's not, at least not yet).

Being a feeder mouse I'm not terribly optimistic about her lifespan, but I figure I'll give her the best care I can for however long she's around. She is currently in Jagger's hand-me-down cage (because he has a new one! I'll post an update in his thread shortly). It's a bit more vertical than I'd like with not as much floor space as I'd like, but it'll do for now until I can make a larger one.

If its vertical you can use shoe boxes to create levels of shelving and chewing material. We always stuck the recycling in the rat and gerbil cages and they loved the new climbing and nomming adventures.

Enjoy.

Logan has discovered Lis, and likes to stand in front of her cage and watch and WAG WAG WAG lol. So far it doesn't seem like he's noticed Jag yet.

Also, he was SO EXCITED this morning when he discovered her that he had to wake me up and tell me about this discovery lol. HEY, DID YOU KNOW THERE IS A MOUSE OVER THERE?!?!
