  1. In my population biology class an eon ago, we used to call mice who learned the value of “live traps” and the bait…”Trap Happy”. We hat to mark them with a marker so we didn’t count them more than once. Those were the mice who would very easily wait for the sacrificial lamb to spring the death traps. 🙂
