About The Red Book of Lithuania. Rodents

The garden dormouse (Latin: Eliomys quercinus), a mammal of the order of rodents included into the Red Book of Lithuania, is a species which is seldom found in Central and Nordic Europe. Only one area is known where this rodent is found in Lithuania – in the forest area of Perloja (Varėna district) where garden dormice of this species were found in nesting-boxes affixed for birds in 1957–1959. The northern birch mouse (Latin: Sicista betulina) is a small rodent with a long hairy tail of the Dipodidae family. It was found in Lithuania for the first time in 1993 in the periphery of the lower reaches of Nemunas.
