|Deep within the bowels of the Laboratory, alone and miserable, lurks a monster so terrifying, so hideous, that no one dares to speak its name. Known only as Dr. F. Romage's Monster mice, their horrible howls can be heard rumbling throughout the walls of the Lab, haunting those who dwell close enough to hear them.|
Monster mice have been found to be especially attracted to Radioactive Blue cheese, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice - the only exception being SUPER|brie+, with which it is also possible to attract Monster mice, but the probability is very low.
The recommended setup for catching 'Monster mice is a Digby Drillbot with Radioactive Blue cheese in the Laboratory or the Arcane Capturing Rod Of Never Yielding Mystery with Radioactive Blue cheese in the Catacombs.
