Mice are a genus of rodents from a subfamily of true mice. The most famous species of this genus is the domestic mouse. In addition to them, this genus includes another 38 species, some of which (domestic mice) are hemerophiles, while other mice – animals that live in secluded forests and away from humans.
Mice are nocturnal animals like most rodents. They are more active at dusk. We can meet mice during the day, especially if there are more of them in an area. Mice live everywhere. There are no mice only in Antarctica, in the sea and on some smaller islands. Mice eat about 10% of their total weight during the day. For example, a mouse weighing 20 to 25 grams eats 2-2.5 grams of food during the day
