A FEW MOUSE FACTS…
- Mice can fit through a hole the size of a pen, about 0.5 cm (1/4 inch). Mice have a flexible skeleton so as long as their head will fit through a crack or hole their body will follow.
- Mice can climb a vertical wall. They can also jump up to 45 cm (18 inches) high!
- Mice are social animals and live in groups.
- Mice reproduce very quickly, young ones can start reproducing as quickly as 4 weeks.
- Mice are nocturnal.
- Mice have poor eyesight, but fantastic hearing and very good smell.
- Mice are omnivores, which means that they eat everything. They don’t need to drink much as they get most liquid from their diet.
- If you think you have one mouse, you most probably have several, at least!
