House Mouse

Series of measured elevation illustrations of the House Mouse

The House Mouse, scientifically known as Mus musculus, is noted for living in close approximation to humans. As such, the House Mouse is considered as a pet due to its domestication, as a model animal for study due to its population and proximity, and as one of the most abundant pest organisms due to its infestation of buildings.

The House Mouse is territorial, mostly nocturnal, and an omnivore, often willing to eat anything it can find. It is also known to be able swimmers, climbers, and jumpers with support from its tail for orientation.

House Mice have a height of 1.2”-2” (3-5 cm), body length between 2.5”-4” (6.3-10.2 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 1.4-1.6 oz (40-45 g). The tail length of a House Mouse is 2”-4” (5-10 cm). House Mice have a typical lifespan of 1-2 years in the wild and between 2-5 years when raised in captivity.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
