This 45 second video shows an nestbox in a nature sanctuary that has been taken over by deer (?) mice. (Video recorded on November 18, 2007. The background squeaking is from a separate recording made by researchers of the mating song of male mice.) My He-Man husband shrieks at the end when the last mouse jumps out onto his arm.
