skateboarding mouse

By Jessica Beech

A game of cat and mouse just isn’t exciting enough for these thrill-seeking rodents. 

Shane Willmott, who gained worldwide fame for teaching his pet mice to surf, has now decided to train them to skateboard.

His explanation? It’s too cold to take them to the beach in the winter!

The mice ride toy skateboards in their specially made mouse-sized skate park in Mr Willmotts back garden.  There is even a ring of fire for the teeny daredevils to skate through!

But do the mice really enjoy it? Or would they rather be gnawing on some cheese?

“They love it,” Shane said.

“Mice are built to surf and skate because their centre of gravity is so low. When they do fall off, they want to get straight back on board.”

Will this be the next Britain’s Got Talent hit?
