Harvest Mice


Latin Name: Micromys minutus

Sex: Male

Harvest Mice like to live in same sex groups or breeding pairs. They grow to be 6cm (2 inches) long with the tail being just as long as their body and have a life span of up to18 months. Harvest mice are omnivores as they will eat the occasional insect but largely feed of a mixture of berries, seeds and grains such as oats, barley, bird seed and sunflower seeds. They will need access to water at all times, whether it be in a small pet water bottle or a shallow water bowl.
