Hazel mouse
Content : Illegible artist signature at lower right of image. Printed on border: "4/5 nat. size." "The common dormouse (Muscardinus avellanarius) is the sole representative of the group inhabiting the British Isles, and is the type of a distinct genus. This tiny little animal, which is about equal in size to the common mouse, is so familiar to most persons from being commonly kept as a pet by children, that any description seems almost superfluous. It is, however, particularly characterised by the cylindrical form of the long and somewhat bushy tail; while internally it is distinguished from all its kindred by the complex structure of the anterior portion of its stomach." Includes additional text.
