Harvest Mice
Harvest mice are the smallest British rodent. They are the only Old World mammals to have truly prehensile tails.
Life span
Up to 18 months.
Statistics
Head and body length: 5-8cm, Weight: 5-11g.
Physical description
They have a blunt muzzle and small hairy ears. The tip of the tail is prehensile (capable of gripping) and is used to assist climbing. The fur is yellow/brown, with a white underside.
Distribution
They range across Europe (although are absent from most of Scandinavia) E. Russia, Korea, S. China and N. Korea. In Britain, they are found from Yorkshire southwards and parts of Wales.
Habitat
Harvest mice inhabit hedgerows and reedbeds, and other areas of tall, dense vegetation.
Diet
They feed mainly on seeds, fruits and bulbs, but a tiny proportion of their diet is made up of insects, particularly in the summer, as well as roots, moss and fungi. Some food is cached underground for the winter.
