    Grasshopper mice

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by CDRW, Dec 9, 2009.

    1. They are carniverous. Their staple diet is grasshoppers and other insects, but have been known to kill other mice and rodents that are even bigger than they are.

    2. They hunt by stalking and pouncing like a cat.

    3. They stake out territory with scent markings, and can control areas of land as big as 9 acres.

    4. They rear up on their hind legs and howl.

    5. They are immune to scorpion venom.

    I smell the coolest animal story since Redwall.

    I'm loving this. 'Specially the howling part. And the immunity to venom part. And the carnivorous mouse part. And . . . ok, all the parts. I smell a cooler animal story than Redwall, and I like Redwall. I mean, look at this!

    Now that, my friends, is genius. Pure and simple.

    It is cute, actually. I'd love to have a pet cannibal mouse.

    And I always feel a tad lonely when I howl at the moon.
