Natals with male mice!

2018-01-05 17:07 #0 by: Grodan

A cool thing about Natal mice is that they can live piecefully with fancy mice. Many owners of males, now have them paired with one or two natals, so they don't have to live alone. 

This is a very revolutionary thing! Heart

Does the sex of the mice matter?

#2 No, it doesn´t. 

Ordinarie mice, Mus musculus, and Natals are two different spieces and can not produce any hybride offspring. I don´t even think they are sexually interested in each other. What they can do is to be good companions and live peacefully together.

My sorce (Alwyn on mus.ifokus.se) says that the only problem with introduction is when/if the Natal/Natals are older. It´s best to introduce them to mice before 7 weeks of age.

Yes, it's very fun and interesting. Now more and more mouse owners can keep groups of both ordinary mice and natalmice together. Laughing
