I did a google/Gumtree search today just out of curiosity to see if there were any mice for sale/adoption/free in Central Scotland and found none. Most if not all were down south, English regions and Wales. I thought, where have all the mice gone? I know it`s never easy sourcing mice anyway but some do tend to appear from time to time from accidental litters or individuals who have bred them for feeders, but mice really are becoming a rare commodity as far as I could see.
I would imaging there are copious amounts of feeder breeders out there supplying the reptile trade, but I suppose they don`t advertise `live` mice and only sell wholesale to pet shops or private individuals. Just thought it strange and sad really.
