Harvest Mouse (micromys minutus) at the British Wildlife Centre. These critters are diminutive, not much more than an inch long from nose to rump, and they use long prehensile tails to cling to twigs and grasses and when they do fall off (as this one did), they bounce well! ;o)

    I so love them, they are the cutest ever. I remember trapping harvest mice on one of the Sussex Wildlife studies and they are truly adorable. Oh… before you ask, after identification, sexing, measuring and weighing, they were instantly released in the same spot were they were captured in very humane traps.

  • CeeJay I would never for a microsecond imagine you harming a small furry critter – a rugrag maybe, but then they sometimes deserve it, hahahaha!!! ;o)
