The harvest mouse is tiny – an adult can weigh as little as a 2p piece! It prefers habitats with long grass, but you are most likely to spot its round, woven-grass nests.
The tiny harvest mouse lives in long tussocky grassland, reedbeds, hedgerows, farmland and around woodland edges. It is mainly vegetarian, eating seeds and fruits, but will also eat invertebrates. Harvest mice build a spherical nest of tightly woven grass, high up in the tall grasses, in which the female will give birth to around six young.
The harvest mouse is the only British mammal to have a prehensile tail: it can use it as a fifth limb, holding on to grass stems with it.
