Just Guybrush, he's possibly just unusual. I've never seen one with long hair like that and he was the only one like that at the store. Fancy/hobby mice are basically the same species as the 'feeder' mice, which are specifically breed to be red-eyed and white in color where-as the hobby mice and bred for being pets so they have various kinds of coats and colors with dark eyes. Longhairs are around, but I haven't come across any in the years I've owned mice.

From what I understand the longhair gene is recessive so you need two parents either with the gene or longhair themselves to make a longhair babies. I doubt this is particularly common for regular ol' pet shop critters so Guybrush here is just unique I 'spose.

Since Guybrush is only around 2-3 months old his longhair appearance will get a bit less fuzzy looking as he gets older though, it's so pretty while he's little though!
