Black Mice

Index

 

 

Mice range in color from white to light brown, dark brown, silver, gray to black while some mice display dual coloration. White and brown are the most common of these combinations, while some specimens may have white, brown and black coats. Colorful rodents are normally hamsters and gerbils. However, there is no distinct species known as black mice. Recent studies have shown that black coloration is dominant in mutations. For these studies a male and female mouse were paired in cages in combinations of white and white, white and black and black and black.

The results revealed that two white mice always bear white offspring. Two black mice, however, produce a mix. One white mouse and one black mouse will result in predominantly black offspring. Black mice have a recessive white gene, leading a black coat to be dominant over a white one.

A mouse can be annoying where mice can be a bigger problem! Getting rid of mice can be done in many ways such as the use of traps that kill or catch and poisons. Controlling mice in and around your home must be taken seriously as they can introduce illnesses to your family as well as transfer fleas to pets.
