I don't have them but want a pair. I just can't find them anywhere . They are supposed to be skittish but I don't know how true that is.

They are very cool, though! Are you thinking of getting some?

i have been looking into getting maybe in the future some zebra mice or spiny mice...for that matter how are spiny mice in terms of chewing and all the other questions i had about zebras? lol...

from what I remember, zebra mice are rather solitary. They can get along with domestic mice if raised together, but two zebras together usually ends in bloodshed.

2 rats, 2 mini rex bunnies, 2 cats, 1 prairie dog, 4 species breeding millipedes, 23 various different species tarantulas, 2 Heteropoda davidbowie huntsman spiders, 3 Liocheles australasiae scorps, 20+ Hogna helluo wolf spiderlings, etc.

spiders are addictive... and super easy to care for!
