The colored mouse is a small granivorous (seed-eating) mammal and belongs to the order of the rodents. They are mainly nocturnal (but adaptable), very sociable and live in groups made up of related family members. They have a life expectancy of 2 to 3 years and reach a body length of 6.5 to 9.5 cm and a body weight of 20 to 40 g.
Originally, the color mouse comes from West Central Asia and Northern India. There it lives in steppe areas and semi-deserts and builds its nests in burrows dug by itself or in crevices between stones. Today, the color mouse can be found all over the world and likes to feed on agriculturally grown grains.
Like all small mammals, the color mouse has its own nutritional needs. Mice like a varied diet. As a supplement to the diet, mice may have small portions of fresh fruit and vegetables. Always let the mice get used to a new type of fruit or vegetable slowly. Of course, mice should always have fresh and clean drinking water available.
The incisors continue to grow for a lifetime, so that the food must provide the necessary tooth wear. Hardness, size and type of feed particles are important here. They must therefore be given sufficient opportunity to wear their teeth. They do this by peeling seeds and gnawing on larger food components. In addition, mice should always have gnawing material at their disposal.
The stomach consists of one chamber and is separated by a mucous membrane into a part without a gland and a part with a gland.
Colored mice have a small cecum. That is why they need easily digestible carbohydrates and an energy-rich diet. The crude fiber content in mouse food should be about 7%.
A complete mouse food should contain 12-14% protein. Granivorous (seed-eating) animals need animal proteins. The valuable amino acids are important for cell renewal and various metabolic processes. Mice can get animal protein from insects, meat or cheese.
High energy requirement
Mice have a fast metabolism and therefore an increased energy requirement. Mice eat up to 200 small portions a day! Therefore, there must be unlimited food available.
A good mouse diet contains no more than 5% oil and fat. Foods rich in fat and sugar may be given to a limited extent. An example of this are nuts. These can be offered as a snack.
The calcium-phosphorus ratio should be 1.1-1.5:1. Calcium is important for bones and teeth.
