Canada, Mice, and the Vikings

Posted by Alex on March 19, 2012 at 9:15 PM

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?

wow, a hard decision, Canada didn't get infested, but other countries with harsh climate did get infested. All though it says that it got lucky with their harsh climate. I think that it is because of the harsh climate, because I think their is another reason why it didn't get infested.
