This is the adorable moment two tiny mice were spotted cuddling before bedtime. Pictured clutching onto a dried up reed, the beaming buddies seemed more than happy to pose up for the camera. But despite their cheery faces, the tiny two-some had recently had their nests destroyed by loggers. Luckily, the adorable door mice were not harmed in anyway and after having a loving snuggle the pair managed to settle down for the night. (Caters)
Harvest Mouse.Harvest mice are Europe’s smallest rodents with a remarkable prehensile tail. This long, hairless ‘limb’ aids climbing through the tall, dense vegetation of their meadow, hedgerow and crop field homes. In the UK, they are rarely found north of Yorkshire or in Wales.Harvest mice weave complex spherical nests out of grass. The one-use breeding nest is roughly the size of a cricket ball and built about a metre above ground in spring and summer.
