How High Can Mice Jump
Three Dimensions: Think in three dimensions

How High Can Feeder Mice Jump, If At All?
What's going on? Well, my bp bought me a feeder mouse because he's not had any food for over a week. And he refuses to eat the feeder mouse. It's illegal to do so, but my practice is that I leave the cage open until the mouse eats it. This has always been my practice and there have never been any issues. My problem now is that the middle section of my cage top has not been completed. The gap is small enough that the mouse can squeeze in if it wants. Can a feeder animal jump higher than a human?
Although I've seen wild mice jump high before, I've never witnessed a feeder mouse do it. The height of his cage is about 1 ft.

Meadow jumping mice come in varying lengths, ranging from 180mm up to 240mm. Their tail is responsible for most of their length (usually 108 mm to 160 mm). Its distinctive characteristics include its 28-35mm long hind feet. The forelimbs are relatively short. This gives it a kangaroo rat -like look, although its tail shows that it is not a kangaroo rat because it is not bushy at the tip. This creature has a short pelage and dense hair. There are a variety of colors in the pelage, however a wide dorsal line is present. This broad dorsal stripe is of a darker brown color, with black tips, giving it a somewhat a grayish appearance. Sides are often a brighter color and usually have an orange to yellow hue. The underbody is white which matches the feet. They have eight mammary gills: two perctoral inguinal, one pectoral and two abdominal. The male genitalia are inconspicuous except during mating season when the scrotal sac becomes enlarged and more visible. Bicolored tails make up the majority of the creature's length. They are darker from above, and lighter below. It is lightly covered with hair, which gets longer as it approaches the tip, but does not get bushy like the kangaroo rat. It's distinctive ears are well-known, and the whiskers are noticeable. The head is small, and narrow, and it is considered to be relatively high crowned.
