24. . . 8. . . 19. . . The Lockpick mouse can use its mini-stethoscope and custom paperclip to circumvent nearly any method of modern lock-itude. Sea chests? Done. Safes? Cracked. Deluxe, master-class lockboxes with fifteen different mechanisms and an explosive security system? There better be a big cheese payoff, but, yeah, the Lockpick can do them, too. It can also spring trap mechanisms ahead of time, leaving the cheese ripe for the taking.
Mouse ID#: 116

Preferred Cheese

The Lockpick Mouse has been found to be especially attracted to Gauntlet Cheese Tier 2, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice.

Hunting Strategy

Physical traps are very effective against the Lockpick Mouse.
Law and Tactical traps are of normal effectiveness. Most other power types, including Parental, are less effective. Rift traps are ineffective.
