Genus Onychomys, Reithrodontomys and Sorex

This page lists rodents that do not fit into the other category assignments. The Grasshopper Mouse is mostly carnivorous, living mostly on insects, spiders and scorpions. The will even kill and eat other mice. The Harvest Mouse looks a lot like the peromyscus mice (deer mice), but for one, it lacks the white feet of that group. Shrews (genus Sorex) are not even rodents. I have them in this group not for scientific reasons, but because people sometimes think of them as “mice”.
