Mice are hardy creatures and almost every country has its mouse population. They can live in forests, meadows and barns or other structures. Generally, mice like to burrow underground because it helps protect them from natural predators such as cats, birds of prey, wild dogs and foxes.
Field mice are timid with humans but very social with other mice. However, domestic mice can be friendly toward humans and may make good pets for older children.
Mice come in a variety of colors and sizes. The more common colors are brown, grey and white. Although they are small animals, they have very large appetites. They eat between 15 and 20 times a day. As a result of their voracious appetite, they like to live close to their food sources. Since mice can squeeze through very small openings in homes and buildings, their entrances are not detectable to the average person.
Mice are nocturnal which means they like to sleep during the day. This is the reason we can hear them playing or foraging for food when it’s dark outside.
Mice feel temperature changes through their whiskers. Additionally, when they communicate with one another, they can make “ultrasonic” sounds.
Although we are led to believe mice love to eat cheese, they actually prefer fruits, seeds and grains. They will eat both plants and meat, too, if they are hungry.
Another interesting fact is that mice have very short lifespans. In the wild, they seldom live for more than 5 months due to predators.
