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.
