Live Mammal Sales Policy: We at Menagerie care about our animals. Before we can send a small pet to its forever home, we require potential owners to have an over-the-phone conversation with one of our small animal experts. It's our responsibility to ensure that customers fully understand the required care, maintenance, diet, and habitat for each individual animal. We look forward to your call. 416-972-6488
The Egyptian Spiny Mouse is a species of rodent from North Africa. They have thick, spine-like hairs on the back of their bodies, hence their name. They live 2-3 years on average.
They require a minimum enclosure size of 24" x 12" x 12", in order to get plenty of exercise. They often make good pets and can be handled and tamed similarly to a hamster. A wheel of at least 6.5" should be provided.
Both Egyptian Spiny Mice living with us are approximately 6 months old and are unsexed.
