I have one mouse that is dark brown with black eyes like all other non-albino mice I've seen. My other mouse, however, is a grainish color with red eyes. I got them both from a pet store, and as far as I know they are from the same litter. The other three mice from their litter that they were housed with all had black eyes too. I always thought that only albino mice had red eyes, but I don't particularly think she's albino. I'm just curious about the speculations you have about why she is grain colored, but has red eyes.

Red eyes in mice and other rodents are really just as normal as someone having blue eyes in humans. Nothing wrong, just a little quirk. Smile My dark brown girl has very dark red eyes.

There are actually two different colors of red eyes in mice - pink (the color of "feeder"/albino mice's eyes), and ruby which is a darker red, looking almost black. There's nothing to worry about if your mouse has red eyes! c:
