The Confidence of a Wild Mouse

Long Tailed Fieldmouse, my little friend climbs on to my hand.


For some months she has eaten peanuts from the patio step. Gradually she learned to pick one up from near my hand or take a peanut from me. Earlier this year she touched me with her little feet and dashed away quickly.

Recently she turned towards me when she heard my voice. I thought at first that was just a chance happening, but now she sniffs the air and walks towards my voice as if to look for the nuts she knows will appear.

This morning she climbed on to my hand , first with two front paws, then three and finally she was all four feet on my hand! In this video you can see clearly how she trusts me.
