How old do you think this mouse is?
« on: December 01, 2015, 01:44:06 PM »
I got him from PetSmart a little over a week ago and am just wondering how old he is. This pic is from the day after I got them. (My camera is broken right now and I can't get good pics of them with my phone.)


Tell me if you need diff angles or a "size compared to object" pic and I'll try and get them.

I'm no expert, but he looks full-grown to me.  So that's what, at least a couple of months?  More?

I'm going with "more". They've BOTH started to go down hill.  :'(  Bernie has a small prolapse the vet will be looking at tomorrow and Gunther is looking rather "puffy", almost like he's retaining water, so I'm taking him, too.  They also have slowed down considerably and sleep more then they did when I first got them, they also look more unkempt. I told the vet over the phone what I was seeing and his response was "old mice".
