White mouse fur turning dark?

Post by Aeviternal on Sun Apr 24, 2016 2:49 am

my white mouse Angelina's fur has been turning dark. i've looked this up but can't seem to find any info on it or if its normal
she was full white except for light brown on her nose, ears, paws and base of tail (siamese) .
her back and head has turned to a grey/brown and she has a dark spot on her over the last 2 months.
Here is an image of her today

she is a siamese but her fur is turning dark in places a siameses fur doesn't (see the dark circle on her back)
Her cage is clean, she gets along with my other mouse, she's eating, she's active, she's friendly.
Is this normal?
Is there something wrong?

Some siamese mice are notorious for undergoing continuous moults of their fur throughout their entire lives. It's perfectly healthy.
