Help with age

Post by j.n379 on Fri 13 Apr 2018, 12:56 am

I just got a mouse today from a reptile shop, and I'm used to adult mice. It is 14 grams. Its ears are fully extended, eyes fully open. It's a little nervous so I'm not 100% yet on male or female, am I right in guessing it's between 3 and 5 weeks old?
I know that's on the line of too young, but better than being food in my opinion. I tried to ask for one at least a month old but the man pretty much just grabbed one at random I think.

I rescued an (estimated) 3 week old feeder mouse as well. She was 15 grams, so very close to the weight of yours. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that you have a pregnant mouse, but I wouldn't worry and would consider it unlikely. My girl was in a mixed tank with males and females, but because she was so young, she wasn't pregnant. She was, however, old enough to eat solids. So I think your mouse should be ok Smile Keep an eye out for a growing belly and make sure your mouse is eating, but don't worry too much.
