The Field Mouse

Image description.

The Field Mouse is a cousin to the rat and the two share certain attributes. For instance the coloring of these rodents are similar, blacks browns and whites, although more commonly mice will be more white or grey than others. Field Mice do not share the large front teeth of rats and their claws are much smaller. A full grown Field Mouse is between 10 to 20 nailsbreadth across, including its tail. The tail is usually as long as the body and is completely hairless. It has extremely small, though sharp claws attached to its stubby legs. Image by Erelen.
