Fancy Mouse - Hairless

Scientific name: Mus musculus

Country / Place of origin: Asia

History: The Hairless mouse is a variety of fancy mouse which is distinguished by its naked, furless body.

According to the American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association (AFRMA), "Hairless mice should have a thin, bright, rather translucent skin, free of scars or pimples, and be as hairless as possible. The skin may be of any color or recognized marking, and wrinkling should not be penalized. The eyes may be of any color, but should be bright and free from any problems. The ears should be very large and wrinkle free. The toenails should be short (clipped if necessary). The whiskers may be very short or missing."
