Richard,

I'm kicking myself for not taking measurements/data on my group. I got the males in the fall of 2008 for outreach animals and they behaved more "normally". They were started on f/t lab mice from the breeder, and would eat well through spring and early summer, then fast the rest of the year. The "2010" animal was sold to me as born that summer, and as I said, has always been a stellar feeder. I had to cut her back to once a month or every 6 weeks because I was worried she was getting too fat. I also have a "2011" female, purchased early December last year. She did not take a single meal until April, but once switched on, has fed reliably on thawed lab pinkies. The 2.1 older animals are housed communally, while the juvenile has her own enclosure for now.

If you scroll down the forum, I have 2 other posts about my little group, one from last year around this time and one from January 2012. Those have some size comparison photos and more information.

best,
Amanda
