Can someone PLEASE explain this to me? :roll:

What does a frizzy look like? Are they like velvet rats?

Most frizzy mice will have their coats straighten out once their adults and can look really close to a standard mouse, more so than a poor rex/caracul.

Alrighty. :>

Well then what about a 'velvet' mouse?
I have a mouse that is a cross between a poor rex, and a mystery mouse (which are supposedly rex/hairless), that had really curly, poofy hair as a juvenile (I figured he was rex), but now it's short, feels rough, but is completely straight, and very very thick. He feels like velvet. :lol:
(His baby pic is in my signature, he's the one in the back)

His siblings were both oddballs too. One is nearly hairless, and has the shortest, thinest coat I've ever produced (she's in my signature) and the other looked hairless as a juvenile, and then grew a scraggly, thin coat as she grew up.

Frizzies sometimes just look like the mousie has condition issues; the hair looks messy and disorganized. Kind of like this, I think:

Yeah, I think that's right. Both types tend to look just a bit 'threadbare'. You can kind of see the remnants of the lovely neat rows of curls Mondo had as a baby (the red buck I show) in the way the hairs are bunched together in ridges.
