Record for oldest mouse?

3 October 2001

Richard A Miller

Does anyone know the world record for oldest mouse? We now have a mouse aged 1407 days, and getting older every day, and I'm trying to see if this is the record holder. Rules: your mouse cannot be on a calorie restricted diet, and cannot have a single-gene mutation like the dwarf and GH receptor-knockout stocks. Does anyone know of a normal mouse on a normal diet that made it past 1407 days?
