The 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. Mice do not share the large front teeth of rats and their claws are much smaller. 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.
Unlike the rat, or for that matter most other animals, the mouse is unusually intelligent. It has been proven by researchers that mice will, if given the time, think out a strategy before doing something. A mouse is also unusually fast for its size. It can move its legs incredibly fast. Its sense of smell, which is by no means exceptional, but it is much better than a man’s.
