African Pygmy Mice Colours

African Pygmy Mice have a natural colouration of agouti, sometimes known as brown. They also come in a more vivid shade of this known as cinnamon or red and a lighter pale variant known as blue. They also have a rather pale variant known as lilac agouti. There have also been a few occasions of what seem to be Siamese mice.

Colours are not standardised for African Pygmy Mice so these names may be known differently.

Coat types

In my own colonies I have noticed a different in coat condition that does suggest a shinier, satin option could well exist and I do have animals with distinctly longer hair than others, with the possibility of curls although whiskers remain straight.
