In my previous mouse video, I said the shrew never made it through the 16.5 mm hole. But two days after that video It actually did make it in there!

You should trap the shrew and make the opening smaller to see if it will keep trying until it does get through or if it will simply give up.

I thought mice didn’t poop where they eat... that’s obviously not true. I read that online somewhere.

next time when it gets in, slide the hole thing down so it either forces its way out or gives up
Strew for the win!!!

Between this and the maze, I've come to realize that shrews need more love.

These videos are so much fun! Thank you. Now if you put more food in the smallest one (a fattening meal for example), I wonder if the shrew would still be able to fit its larger frame through the exit. Probably not. So would it panic, or sit and wait for nature to take its course. Or would it have sense enough to realise it would get stuck, and move the food to the outside first? Probably not! 😂 Another experiment for you? ;)

The escape seemed easier than the entry. Maybe once he's all slicked down with peanut oil it's a little easier going. Maybe if you gave him 80 grit sand paper on the floor to get more pushing traction?

I reckon you'd find that if the holes were made of something thinner (still resistant to chewing), they'd be able to get through an even smaller hole. Just like a contortionist can fit through a tennis racket with the strings removed, but wouldnt be able to fit through a pipe of the same dimensions

The other parameter that isn't tested is length of the hole. I think that if the hole was in a thin piece of board, it would be easier to squeeze through than a thick longer tunnel. If the material that has the holes bored in in it was thinner, my hypothesis is that the shrews and mouse could get through a smaller hole than what is shown here.

Put a one-way door on the hole and you have yet another "better mousetrap".
Φώτης Γιακαμόζης
Can i suggest something? Try putting a "grubby" floor so the shrew can grab and pull or push it self in and out of the hole. I bet it's going to be easier and it will go through the smaller one!

Actually it was not him, was the sound of the mouse itself
I'm surprised they didn't chew those holes larger. What if you repeat that experiment altered with a very thin flaceplate like paneling ?

What did I learn from watching these two videos, the Shrew will out live the mice or it,s just more greedy. Second Matthias makes the funniest sound effects.

I was wondering, the shrew (as did the mice) inspects the hole's lining with its snout multiple times. Do you know if they're just sniffing or if they are actively chewing through the edges to try and increase the size of the hole?

All this means is that you need to make smaller holes.
BK201MXP Year ago
If you made the ground grippier they'd be able to push themselves in easier! You'd get more accurate results of they weren't limited by the low frictional force.

They are having a hard time getting a good footing, maybe a rougher surface would encourage them to try even smaller holes?

You have to put plenty of food in the small hole so the mouse cant get out again.
Giuseppe Maggio
put a lot of food in the pocket with 16.5 hole, I want to see how the mouse will get out XD
Thinner wood may help them get through a smaller hole

If I recall right if you had designed it as cone entry they would be unable to find a way to exit again.

Is the white surface laminate? If so, I bet he could make it through much easier if he could get some traction.

How much food does it have to eat to be able to get in but not get out?

Nameless Assyrian . yeah they dont do that. it was reallly super weird and unexplainable

Didn't know mice did that..crazy!

If you had left any more food in that chamber, the shrew wouldn't have been able to leave. :)

Would a flooring with higher friction allows them to power through smaller holes ?
Steve Corwin

Both the shrew and the mouse in the previous video looked like their feet were slipping when they were trying to get through the hole. I wonder if they could get through smaller holes if they had better traction?
SpiderEyes Year ago
And if it's a wood worker mouse, it could use the sandpaper to make the hole bigger if it can't fit ;-)

120 grit sandpaper should provide excellent traction.
