Hello all! I recently came across a very interesting mouse coat that I was hoping to get a second opinion on :)

These little guys have a very short, but very consistent/even (and very soft) coat. I have hairless mice and double rex rats as well and this is totally different than that. It looks like a tiny mouse barber just gave them a very neat buzzcut all over lol. These are rescues from a feeder box so the previous owner didn't know their genetics.

Have you ever seen this before or know what it might be called if so? The closest I can find is this (4th pic down), but it doesnt seem quite right either since those seem more wooly:

It looks like their hair may be wavy, but it's so short that it's hard to tell. The white ones look more hairless than they are due to the coat color, I tried to capture it as best as I can. The coat seems short like this both in adults and in babies. Any thoughts?
