Nugget mice never grow very big, and are not very good at getting anywhere fast. When the other mice were handing out jobs, they decided the Nuggets were no competition for the likes of the Big Bad Burroughs clan. After all, Nuggets can't smash or bend or bury anything. . . and yet, the little Nuggets lead a peaceful life, gathering little bits of things that they find on the ground and hoping that they might prove useful. They're fond of shiny beetle shells, and like to form collections.
