    History of Mice

    Domesticated mice are descendants of the house mouse or scientific name Mus musculus. The house mouse originated in Asia but now are found all over the world, particularly where people are present. The earliest domesticated mice were kept in the royal palaces of Japan and China.

    Life expectancy of mice is 1.5-3 years.

    House mice inhabit fields and areas associated with people across the whole world. Other than people, they are the most widely distributed mammal.

    House mice are nocturnal and feed on seeds, plants, and insects. The female can give birth to 4-7 young every 30 days, but due to the high level of predators, most of the young do not survive for more than a few months.
