Does anybody here know about snake schedules and when they hunt?
My house is incredibly over run with wild mice and I catch and release
10 every other day. I keep them for a few days to form a colony. Tiny
ones I keep until they are old enough to at least have a chance at
survival in the wild and females with visible ***s I release back
into the house in case there is a litter waiting to be fed. OLD mice
are also released back into the house.
Anyway, I have been releasing them early in the day so they would
have ample daylight to find temporary shelter, but now need to re think
this. The only time I see snakes is during the prime daylight hours and
of course mice are mainly nocturnal so I am probably screwing them over.
I feel so bad when I turn them out knowing that most won't survive
very long. I need to increase their chances anyway that I can. Do you
think that they have the instincts to dig a burrow?
It makes it harder that the majority look domestic.
Is anyone interested in the story of Randy the wild mouse and why all
the wild's look domestic?
Say "Yes"! I want to tell Randy's story. He was born wild and died
wild, but still will be remembered as one of my all time unforgetable
favorites out of hundreds of domestics.
