|Locations:||Jungle of Dread|
|Mouse Group:||The Dreaded Horde|
|Bait Pref:|| SUPER|brie+|
|More Info:||MouseHunt Info Page|
Vanilla harvesters live in fear of Pygmy Mice, who terrorize anyone who tries to get near their beloved vanilla vines on the far side of the Jungle of Dread. Normally, the Pygmy Mice’s rage is confined to their territorial groves, but, like most mice, the Pygmy Swarms prefer that their favorite food be delivered in cheese form. They enjoy Gouda and SUPER|brie+, but the smell of a vanilla cheese turns them into a roiling mass of fur and teeth ready to devour your cheese stock.
Shadow type traps such as the Clockapult of Time are very effective against Swarm of Pygmy mice. All traps with other power types, including Arcane type traps such as the Obelisk of Slumber, are ineffective against these mice.
