Its geographic spread has been facilitated by its commensal relationship with humans which extends back at least 8,000 years. The confusion arises because of the gross morphological similarity of many Mus species, many of which are only (relatively) distantly related and the phenotypic plasticity within the various species themselves.

Another study in New Zealand found that mice were predating upon lizards and that adults were more susceptible than juveniles (Newman 1994). They are prolific breeders, sometimes erupting and reaching plague proportions.

An important finding of this review is that when mice are the only introduced species on an island their behaviour is more similar to that of rats and has a much larger impact on the native ecosystem.
