Mussarana is their common name and they are from South and Centeral America. I think there are a few subspecies.

Thanks Chantel, I will have give mine a try in the next few weeks. Good luck with the babies, mine were pretty young when I obtained them and were no problem to get on pinky mice, but not sure how much scenting was required for the first few meals. Good luck!
