Mouse Intestine Thick Section

Mice occur in nearly every habitat and on every continent but Antarctica, either naturally or through introduction by humans. Their diet consists of grains, roots, fruits, insects, grass, and "people food". The brownish-gray house mouse originated on the Eurasian continent but gained a worldwide distribution thanks to human dispersal and travel. These mice can multiply quickly, usually breeding every 10 to 17 weeks a year and producing 5 to 10 young per litter.
