Multimammate Mouse

Description:

Multimammate Mouse...taken dangling because the hyperactive little buggers have a habit of laying their incisors into fingers to voice their frustrations when handled. Very abundant following good rains this year and many youngsters present as well...with 12 pairs of t*ts you can have a dozen offspring and still have a dozen free....not surprising they have outbreaks of pest proportions on occasion.

Description:

These two photos were taken in the same place 3.5 years apart of mice running around at the exit of Serengeti that heads towards Oldupai Gorge.

When first there, I thought maybe gerbils, but now my best guess is Single-striped Grass Mouse, but I'm not confident there.
