    That trap is one of the most compact I've seen. It doesn't look terribly hard replicate. Adding more springs to make it a humane quick kill would have to be part of revisions.

    LOVE your channel & checking my 10+ traps every day (3 builds are from your channel). I know I’ll catch flack for this question BUT....any advice on how to domesticate one of the mice? I know about the diseases & risks, but (theoretically) any advice from you or your viewers? I’m catching & killing at least 4/day mostly in live traps & I don’t “relocate” them so domesticating one would kind of be a personal challenge.

    Instead of sticking your finger into it, could you set it by turning it upside down, so that gravity pulls the trigger down and sets the latch?

    The fact NLrock gives you an issue with the traps in the act is ridiculous. I came across many creators showing them killing animals and they are monetized. The rules are ridiculous but I get why you do it and for that I support you and what you have to do man.

    I actually had a pet opossum for 7 years. He was very sweet and slept in my lap. They need a high calcium diet to stay healthy or they get metabolic bone disease. 7 years is elderly for an opossum unfortunately. Mine was my baby until he passed away.

      @Narrow Path true. Generally when people talk about non-native species though, they mean species that have been introduced through human activity rather than natural migration. (Eg The “house mouse” is native to India, but has since hitched a ride on ships, wagons, and trains to nearly every corner of the Earth)
