Cactus mouse at Lincoln Park Zoo

Shredded paper gets recycled as enrichment for a colony residing at the zoo’s Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House. The speedy rodents, native to the deserts of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico, can be seen in the gallery section of the animal house.
