African Pygmy Dormice grow to be 15cm (5 inches) in length and have a life span of 4-6 years. They are arboreal and most active at dawn and dusk so will require plenty of natural enrichment. African Pygmy Dormice are omnivores feeding on nuts, seeds, fruits and protein can be given in the sources of insects and hard boiled eggs. Fresh water should be given daily in a small animal water bottle. African Pygmy Dormice can hibernate so temperatures should be a minimum of 21 Celsius (70 Fahrenheit).
