my mouse maze from last year had this 19 millimeter hole
that the mouse got through without problems,
but I wonder how small a hole can a mouse get through.
And if mouse makes it through all these holes I can just slide that over
and force the mouse through even smallerholes.
I put some peanut butter in front of the holes as well
as in the holes and in the compartments behind.
And I’ve got my Raspberry Pi 2
with a camera module watching it
Now I just have to wait for a mouse
so the critical diameter is somewhere
between 16 and 17 and a half millimeters
so have to make some holes of those sizes
and I’m using my pantorouter for those odd sized holes.
I know the mouse can get through that one.
What I’m testing is half a
millimeter smaller and one millimeter smaller than that
I’m adding more peanut butter to
make it more tempting for the mouse
so it’ll actually try those holes
finally it went in a hole
but I already knew It could do that one
it seems the mouse wasn’t even trying the smaller holes
but added more peanut butter just to make sure the mouse kept coming back
Oh no no I’ve been infiltrated by a mole
but actually it’s just as shrew,
but still not what I was looking for
well I guess this one’s a little bit
too big to take away the mouse bait
and the mouse is back
but I think that most has just gotten lazier
or maybe I fed it too much already
well at least that shrew is trying to getinto holes
that hole is too small just give it up
holy crap I wonder if it is make it back out
no way the mouse never tried to go through that hole
I left the experiment running for a few days
after that and the shrew kept going
through the same holes but never thesmallest one
