Fancy Mice

Fancy Mice
(I believe theire still listed as Mus musculus, although they've been bred in captivity so long they really should be classed seperate from their wild ancesters)

Typically 13 to 20 cm long, but selective breeding has produced some smaller mice, as well as big, beautiful "English" mice. The ideal mouse should be long and somewhat racey, but show strong bone structure, with a well arched loin. English type mice generally have greater size, ears and tail length.
