Human genomes' centromeres are labeled with red arrows. However I can't find this type of labels in the mouse genome. Is there a way to show centromeres on the UCSC genome browser for mouse, too?

Mouse centromeres are telocentric (i.e., next to the telomeres), so they're not that terribly interesting to show.
