Das Tierporträt: Tüpfelstreifen-Grasmaus.

Eliomys 2021/3: 22-24.


The typical striped grass mouse (Lemniscomys striatus) which has a distribution from West to Central Africa, is characterized by its stripes on its back consisting of individual dots. Behaviour and husbandry of this rodent species are described. They are pronounced ground dwellers and herbivores which is why they should be offered green forage ebery day. Brfeeding is not considered easy as it is naturally linked to the rainy season. This can be simulated in the husbandry by adding more green forage and increasing humidity.
