Misconceptions About Mice
Posted on December 17, 2010
In fiction, mice are popularly portrayed as loving cheese, but, in reality, most mice do not particularly like cheese, and prefer foods in their natural diet. Cheese probably became linked to mice because its strong smell and sticky texture make it a good bait for mousetraps, even though some cultures may use different baits such as sardines. Another common stereotype that is also not true in reality is that elephants are afraid of mice.
