Harvest Mouse (micromys minutus). Mini, (or Minnie), this tiny mouse measures around 4-5cm head and body only. The tail is normally 5-7cm and is prehensile, enabling the tiny critter to use it to cling onto stems as it climbs in its natural habitat of fields and meadows. Native to Europe and Asia.

    Too hot for me Krys….what an amazing spring and summer though. The best for years I think. How often do we get through the first week of Wimbledon without being rained off…lol

  • True! I’d hate to be on court at Wimbledon in this heat (also cause I don’t play tennis,hahaha!) ;o)))
