Algerian Mouse Gave Me A Shock Today

I was clearing leaves on the patio today when this tiny Algerian Mouse jumped from the pile of leaves and started running around the patio. After a few words of encouragement, hinting that our garden is not the best place to be, it went off into the vegetation outside of the garden area.

It is the Algerian Mouse, also known as the Western Mediterranean mouse, rather than the closely related House Mouse due to the short length of its tail. I was only armed with my mobile and got these shots.

To show you just how small it was, here is a shot with some keys for scale.

Spread the photo love!...
