GLIS GLIS (Fat or edible dormouse)

The Glis Glis (fat dormouse or edible dormouse) has an approximate length of the head-body of 14-20cm. They have a grey back and head with dark, narrow rings around the eyes. The under parts are white or yellowish. Their pelage is short, soft and thick. These animals are squirrel-like with large and rounded ears, small eyes and a long bushy tail (11-19cm). The hands and feet are both equipped with hard pads for use in climbing. The four digits of the forefeet and the five digits of the hind feet have short, curved claws. The Glis Glis was introduced to Britain in 1902. The species is still confined to a relatively restricted area, concentrated in a 200-square-mile triangle between Beaconsfield, Aylesbury and Luton. Its legal status is confused, being both legally protected, but at the same time an alien species and significant pest. Licences may be granted to trap Glis Glis, but they may not then be released into the wild because they are not a native species in Britain. The total British population is unlikely to be less than 10,000. Nobody seems to be regularly monitoring Glis Glis in Britain, but some small studies have now begun aimed at understanding more about population density, movements and potential ways of controlling this animal.

The Glis Glis is omnivorous and feed mainly on nuts, seeds, berries or fruit. They have one litter per annum and the litter size can vary but averages about 6. The gestation period is approximately 1 month (30 days). Mating takes place often around June / July and new born found in August time after the female has weaned her young which takes approximately 6 weeks.

The Glis Glis are very agile and stealthy and can be present in your building without you ever knowing, however quite often especially near mating season the males can become quite noisy and loud in their movements causing people distress especially when they are living within your loft, cavity wall or warehouse. The Glis Glis will mark their territory with a glandular secretion which often causes a strong odour in an area close to where they are living, they will drop their fecal pellets quite randomly producing quite a mess in a short time.

This squirrel like creature is protected by law and if you suspect you have a visiting Glis Glis we hold a licence to remove them from your property with cage traps.
