About the object

see less see more
The long-tailed field mouse or wood mouse is widespread across the Palearctic and can be found at heights of 3,000 meters. It is omnivorous and subsists on a diet of seeds, insects, grasses, fruit, mushrooms and roots. It is closely related to the yellow-necked mouse, except that it lacks the marking that lends the latter its name - the yellow band or patch of fur on its neck. The wood mouse, contrary to its suggestive name, is more commonly found in fields, parks and gardens. They are very common in Europe, population size being dependent on food supplies. The animals are accomplished climbers and mainly nocturnal.
