What is the differenc between a standard coat and a satin coat? Can you feel the difference or is it just that a satin mouse has a shiny looking coat? I have one male that has a very soft almost velvety coat and it has no shine to it is it just a standard fur or something different?

I'll try and post pictures tomorrow if I can.

Satin coats have a different structure to the hair, which gives them a metallic shiny appearance and they feel quite silky. If you're not sure if something is a satin the easiest way to tell is to look at the belly.
