Communication and Perception
Deer mice have large eyes and ears as well as keen noses and long whiskers for perceiving their environment. They communicate by grooming one another, posturing with their bodies, producing scent, and making a variety of squeaky noises. Sometimes when disturbed they drum their front paws rapidly up and down against a hard surface. This may serve as a warning signal to other deer mice.
