Aw, he's very cute! @naturemer, oftentimes in a laboratory setting they will place a small tag in the ear of the animal to help identify it. It doesn't hurt them at all.

Yea :) he's db/db.

Cute little thing. :) He's rather fat, is he one of the knockouts that tend to get like that?

I had a feeling people would pick at it, yes it's a laboratory mouse with an ear tag. My favorite one.

Is his ear pierced?!? That's awfully cruel.
