Merlot and daughters

Species: African Pygmy Dormice
Group: 3, female
Arrived: 10 May 2012

Successfully rehomed

A mum and her daugh­ter came to us in October 2012 after their owner realised they were not hav­ing the care they needed. Some bul­ly­ing had occured in their group which meant they were miss­ing part of the end of their tails and were under­sized. Sadly the mum, Mer­lot died before her home was finalised and so I paired up the res­cue girl with two of my girls and they went as a group together — as African Pygmy Dormice should not be kept alone.

These girls are being throughly spoilt with a large vivar­ium, and some fake plants that they take great delight in destroying!
