In which country would you see the zebra mouse?

This tiny creature with its black and brown stripes running its back is now only found in Africa. As well as being known as the zebra mouse it is also called the striped fieldmouse. It is found in many regions, amking its home in a grassy hollow, where it rests during the hot time of day, after a busy morning scampering about on the savannah. It goes searching for food in the form of pulses and grasses, but it always wary of snakes or birds of prey for whom this little mouse makes an excellent meal!
