Edible dormouse (Glis glis)
The edible dormouse is found throughout much of western Europe. It is the largest of all dormice, being around 14-19 cm in head-body length, plus a 11-13 cm tail. The edible dormouse is capable of limited autotomy: if another animal grasps the tail, the skin breaks easily and slides off the underlying bone, allowing the dormouse to escape. They prefer dense forests with rocky cliffs and caves, but may be found in maquis vegetation, orchards, and urban margins. Edible dormice are primarily herbivorous, feeding mainly on berries, apples, and nuts. Edible dormice are nocturnal, spending the day in nests taken from birds, or located in hollow trees or similar shelter. They are good climbers, and spend most of their time in the trees, although they are relatively poor jumpers.
