We might not often spot mice in the wild during winter, so it’s easy to assume they hibernate, but they don’t. Many of them have little burrows and tunnels under the snow, much like this little guy.
In winter foxes often listen for mice under the snow and hunt them that way. They tend to do a head tilt, to hone in on the sounds they’re hearing under the snow. If you look closely you might be able to find the next animal somewhere in this image.
When trying to catch prey under the snow foxes jump and dive, which is quite adorable, and sometimes they look like they get stuck. Unlike both the mouse and the fox, weasels change colours in winter, at least in the northern hemisphere. Using its stealth this little weasel got its prey, though who knows, the fox might not go hungry if there’s more mice under the snow.
