The House Mouse, Mus musculus, is a small rodent, a mouse, one of the most numerous species of the genus Mus. As a wild animal the house mouse mainly lives associated with humans, causing damage to crops and stored food. The house mouse has been domesticated, as the pet or fancy mouse, and as the laboratory mouse, which is one of the most important model organisms in biology and medicine, and is by far the most commonly used genetically altered laboratory mammal.

Imagine what it's like for a tiny insect to jump and fly as quickly as they do. They might cover 40 body lengths in a second. To a six-foot person that's 164 mph. This site tries to understand how it feels to move like a fly, a squirrel, a cat, a rhinocerous, or a falcon.
