I've heard of mice in barred cages getting scarce fur on their nose from poking it through the bars. However, tonight while I was watching them play, she crawled up the waterbottle and stuck her nose in this little space between the tank and the lid - does that make sense? Either way, she's shoving her nose into this little space and I'm pretty sure that's why her face fur is so scarce! But...how do I stop it? Is there any way to discourage her from doing this?

Besides getting another top that doesn't have that space, I can't think of a way to deter her.

Thin fur is usually a result of the mouse scratching herself with her hind feet.
