Where did this idea pink mice have no calcium come from? Below I make a few points to illustrate how silly this really is!

#1) Every cell in the mouses body has a bit of calcium. It is a necessary mineral for nerves and muscles.

#2) Pink mice have a skeleton, most obviously a skull to protect their brain. They are not jelly heads! Clearly these bones have calcium. I may get a vet to x-ray a day old pink mouse just for occasions like this.

#3) A day old mouse has milk in its stomach. You can see this thru the skin. Mouse milk is chock full of calcium.

#4) Baby snakes are raised on pink mice without supplement and they grow up with good strong bones.

Lastly, Steve has raised many Helodermas. See his post for his personal experience.

Enjoy your treasures!
