I’m sure you all know and remember hearing of the Vikings in
the past. Recently, a team of scientists conducted an investigation regarding
the people who raided, traded, discovered, and inhabited a vast range of areas.
The research conducted by the international group of scientists found that
everywhere the Vikings had settled, they brought a common pest with them, the
common household mouse. An even more fascinating point is that the only country
to not get infested by mice was Canada.
The country got lucky and was spared because of its harsh climate to which the
mice were unable to adapt at that time. We probably all know that there are
mice in Canada
today because as time passed these rodents were able to adapt to harsher
conditions. I personally, doubt this was because of climate. Other cold
countries that had ran-in with the Vikings got infested; meaning that Canada most
likely only got spared, but what do you believe?
