What is the normal heart rate of a mouse?
I do not have conclusive research data and I have found the following on the web.
A typical house mouse may have between 500 and 600 beats per minute at rest; active may be 700 bpm according to some fairly reliable sources. I am not sure if all mice species are comparable.
