These are my African Pygmy Dormice.
I have 3 males and 6 females at the moment.

They are so cute and sweet. And they don't like bright lights.

Be the most Expensive snake food you've ever seen at £100 a pair! lol

Keeping them isn't hard at all. A large tank on it's end with a fine mesh lid, plenty of long cork bark tubes placed upright.
They eat a variety of fruits and seeds, mealworms, jars of fruit baby food, Youghat drops etc

They are really sweet little things and make the cutest little chattering noises. They don't like bright lights and do better if they are in a dimmed or slightly darken corner. They do become tame and will happily sit on you hand to be photographed.

I have a young pair for sale to fund my want of western hognosed. :)

They do a bit don't they apart from the lack of facial markings lol

They are squeaking at the moment cause they are awake and eating strawberries.

Aslong as you don't grab them they don't bite. I sort scoop mine into my hand and they are happy to sit in my hand or they climb up my arm. Dead funny cause it's like they have sticky feet! lol
I can handle all my Dormice.

No, they are quiet clean like most afican rodents as they are low urine. They tend to bury a lot under the bedding all curled up. Only messy bit is giving them maple syrup.
