Some famous mice are Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Jerry, Sneezer, Stuart Little, Herman the Great, Martin the Warrior and other Redwall mice, Mighty Mouse, and Pinky and the Brain.


The smallest mouse is the pygmy mouse which is less than 4 inches in length including its tail!!!



The grasshopper mouse can eat many kinds of insects, other small mammals, and even scorpions.


North African grass mice are active during the day.


House mice are probably the most well known mice of all and can be found everywhere.


African climbing mice are active at night and eat grains and insects.


The common door mouse is known for its long hibernations.


Striped field mice can be found in fairly large groups.


Big hind feet let Australian hopping mice take long leaps.


Leaf-eared mice live in South America and they are named that because of their wide and thin ears.


Meadow jumping mice can be found in North American prairies.


Mexican volcano mice can live on very high slopes and have very, very dense fur.


There are some very smart mice. This is one true story about some smart mice:


A True Story:

Two mice had to do a little obstacle course to get to some food. First they had to climb a ladder. Then they had to pull it up. They tested it to see if it was strong enough and then one of them climbed on the back of the ladder to keep it there. After that the last one had to go across a bridge. The bridge is the kind that has to be pulled back to you before you can cross. The mouse finally crossed and got to the food. He went back down to help the other mouse get some food.

I think deer mice are sooo cute with their humongous ears ~ yet even they freak me out!

In fact,

There's a mouse in our cottage,
It's teensy, weensy, tiny,
But his spooky eyes, freak me out,
Because they're black and shiny! Afraid


Thanks for those mousey factums! There's power in knowledge!

Luvs 'n Funs,
EA

Mice did someone say mice   I would rather take on a 300 lb. wrestler than one tiny field mouse, ahem, must be a "girly thang."
