This Tiny Mouse Has an Incredible Talent

The grasshopper mouse (sometimes called the “scorpion mouse”) is one of the most gutsy rodents on the planet — unlike every other animal, this tiny mouse actually hunts scorpions!

In fact, they have been at odds with scorpions for so long that they don’t appear to experience any pain if they are stung, and are actually immune to scorpion venom. Scorpions are so poisonous in fact as an evolutionary response to this tiny mouse’s immunity.

Have a look to see these incredible critters in action.
