  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I just adopted two 5 month old male spiny mice yesterday. When they arrived at my house, I noticed one had bite marks on his tail and back. His ears are also pretty chewed up, but they're healed so I'm assuming that happened quite a while ago. The person I adopted them from said they have been...
