Mr Greengrass  thank you for the wonderful pictures if only I had your skill.

I dare not hijack your lovely post, but many years ago I kept Harvest Mice as pets. I have literally hundreds of photos of these lovely little creatures. Not in your class but amusing and folk seemed to be interested in them so here's a few. I also have a twenty minute CD of mum building a nest which is a work of art and fascinating. They used to rip a bullrush apart in minutes and play hide and seek in the seeds.

Unbelievably cute. Do they tame well , and do they make good pets ?.

No they dont and as I was constantly releasing them into the wild, "they do breed rather well" I did not want them too tame. The original "mum" did get quite friendly an I kept her.

Ah , they were bred for release back into the wild 👍.

I catch them now and again in my live catch rat trap , I always watch them for a while before I let them go.
