Crittery Exotics

An exotic pet resource website providing information on common and exotic rodents and small mammals such as African Pygmy Mice, African Pygmy Dormice, Fancy Mice, Harvest Mice, Mongolian Gerbils, Mouse-like Hamsters, Southern Flying Squirrels, Steppe Lemmings and Zebra Mice amongst many others.


Crittery was setup in 2007 by Christine to give a central resource point to help counteract the misinformation about common rodents and the lack of information about more exotic pets. Many sections of this site are peer-reviewed and all are based on extensive research, community review and personal experience.

It is used as a learning tool by multiple UK colleges running animal care courses and attracts a significant number of visitors.


Crittery also has a rescue aspect for small exotics; Crittery rescue aspect is home-run and any animals that do not find a suitable new home stay with us for life.

Crittery is home-run, and not a business. Please email any media enquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
