White-Footed Mouse Trivia
White-footed mice live on the ground in logs and stumps. Since white-footed mice can climb, they will often nest in abandoned bird nests in trees and bushes or in cavities in the trunks of trees. Nest cavities are lined with finely shredded plant materials and the opening's concealed. The home range of a white-footed mouse is 0.5-1.5 acres. These mice can live for 2-3 years.
