Mice have many dangers. There are probably too many to count, but here are a few: foxes, weasels, owls, cats, snakes, and coyotes. Some people keep owls in their barns on their farms to keep the mice away. And of course, if the little mice did not get the point fast enough, well theyre doomed. Sad but true. Mice can run up to seven miles an hour and can jump seven times their own length. Guess what. People are also much danger to mice! How? By putting out traps and poison. Yuck. These are just a few of the dangers wild mice face every day. :-)
To avoid so many dangers, mice use their keen sense of smell, their tail, eyes, touch and ears. Their eyes cant see very well, but, mice probably would not look very good without them, would they? Their touch, from hands, tail and whiskers, helps a lot, which helps them not to bump into things. Their whiskers help the most, though. Ears are very important for mice. They sense danger and movement and all of those other things. Tail is for balance, which comes in very handy for scurrying along trails and paths and rocks and other things that mice might scurry along from predators.
