Mice   

1     Mice are animals capable of stirring two contrasting feelings from us! If we find a house mouse running inside our residence, we panic, scream, and rush to call the first exterminator that we can get a hold of. If we see a white mouse jogging inside an exercise wheel at a pet store, we smile, look at the animal with interest, and hold out our hands to touch it. Actually, house mice and white mice are the same species. Yet, we dislike house mice but adore white mice.
 
2     Mice belong to the rodent family. Most rodents have pointed muzzles, long whiskers, compact bodies, clawed feet, and long tails. Their four front incisor teeth grow throughout their lifetime. Because of this specific physical feature, rodents must spend a lot of time chewing on various objects, so they can wear down their teeth. Rodents can adapt to all types of environments. In fact, Antarctica is the only place on Earth that rodents cannot manage to survive.
 
3     Like most of their other rodent relatives, mice have keen senses of smell and hearing. They usually come out during the nighttime to search for food. Mice are not picky eaters. They eat anything that they can sink their teeth into. Hence, they devour fruits, seeds, insects, or other small animals. If they decide to move into our homes, they eat kitchen scraps as well.
