Distinguishing characteristics of Deer Mice
Posted on October 13, 2019
Deer mice have large protruding black eyes; large, scantily furred ears; and long, coarse whiskers. Most adult deer mice vary in color from grayish-brown to reddish-brown. Deer mice utter high-pitched squeaks, trills and chatters. Sometimes they emit a shrill buzz that lasts from five to 10 seconds and can be heard at distances of up to 50 feet.
