Caption: Dormouse (Muscardinus avellanarius) in torpor. Living up to five years, the common dormouse may spend up to three quarters of its life asleep, hibernating, as here, when food is scarce. It grows to a length of about eight centimetres and lives in woodland and hedgerows throughout Europe. Dormice spend most of their time in the tree canopy, eating insects, seed, flowers and fruits.
