What you need to know
Can live with:
They will need a spacious tank with lots of enrichment and things to keep them occupied and busy. They will need knowledgeable owners who have had small rodents before.
Manchego & Halloumi are a pair of mice that came to us via an inspector, they were transferred from another branch. They are from a large group that we had to split up. They have been vet checked and have a clean bill of health. They arrived to us on 07/11/2023.
Halloumi is the darker brown mouse and Manchego is a light tan/silver. We estimate they are around 6-8 months, Manchego is likely the younger of the two. When we clean them out we usually find Manchego likes to stay in his bed. He much prefers to stay all warm and cosy than have to get up! Being younger, he is a bit calmer being handled although he still needs patience getting used to it. Meanwhile Halloumi is more active in the day and quite a speedy guy, he is a bit wrigglier when picked up.
