Southern Grasshopper Mouse (Onychomys torridus)
Throughout the month of November 2020, FaunaFocus will feature the southern grasshopper mouse!
The southern grasshopper mouse is an omnivorous rodent from North America that mostly feeds on arthropods, such as scorpions and grasshoppers. It is notable for its wolf-like howls and immunity to scorpion venom, granting it the nickname, “Scorpion Mouse”. Due to its aggressive and cannibalistic nature, it is solitary and highly territorial.
Create art inspired by the southern grasshopper mouse and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
