DORMICE

Brett Lewis Photography writes:

“It’s always heart warming when you encounter torpid dormice at the start of the survey season. These two were encountered during our monthly checks of our boxes in east Kent.”

The dormouse is a rodent of the family Gliridae (this family is also variously called Myoxidae or Muscardinidae by different taxonomists).

Dormice are mostly found in Europe, although some live in Africa and Asia. They are particularly known for their long periods of hibernation. Because only one species of dormouse is native to the British Isles, in everyday English usage “dormouse” can refer either to that one species (the hazel dormouse) or to the family as a whole.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’
