there are many different types of mice, the fancy mouse is just the domestic mouse that is generally a calmer mouse and makes a very gently pet that comes in many colors, compared to a "feeder" mouse which has been highly inbred and has a shorter life span, some people do still keep them as pets because they don't want them to become snake food, as sad as it may be that's what they were bred for and are normally less cared for. hope that answered ur question!!
