New Isis pictures!

I took some new pictures of my spiny mouse, Isis, last night.

I had to bribe her with treats to get her to sit still long enough to photograph her .





Close up:



I love her so much . She now asks to come out by sitting on top of her wooden house and staring at me. If I walk over to the cage she runs to the front and waits for me to open it so she can climb into her excercise ball. After using the ball for a little while I usually give her a treat and let her run around in the bathtub before going back to her cage. I want to make sure she gets lots of attention since she lives alone.

Thanks, everyone!

Yeah, their back has a very interesting texture though I must admit I don't feel it often...she isn't too tame yet .

Is a spiny mouse actually a regular mouse or is it some kind of a mouse hybrid? does her back feel like a hedgehog or is it regular fur? ...She sure is cute.

Nope, it's a different species then "regular" fancy mice . The stiff hairs on her back will go up if she's scared which makes her look spiny. She doesn't curl into a ball like a hedgehog, though, and her spines don't really hurt.

This is a website I found helpful when researching them: http://www.hiiret.fi/eng/spiny/index.html
