California Mice (peromyscus californicus)

Has anyone here ever had or heard of california mice as pets? I have :-) I have two brothers right now. They are realy cool little guys. They are about 4 times the size of "house" mice and are white below with redish sides that blend to gray/black on the back. They are much more active and agile then house mice, they can JUMP!! and do back flips when excited. They are bit nippy though, as they are not truly tame or domestic.
I will post pics when I can
