    I was filling the propane on a camper yesterday at work and the owner asked me this question. Seem a mouse ate a large cup-a-soup (Raman noddles) and he was wondering if they would expand and blow the mouse up. Interesting.

    I have seen mice get into soft drinks like PEPSI or COKE and the results is they will expand out into a round ball with feet. Apparently they can't fart and the gases just make them blow out... Never saw one explode but they do die right away... Suffocation from the inside I guess... Pretty weird seeing little fat mices running around the walls haha...

    I have never heard of a mouse exploding from noodles, I reckon it might be a long shot. We used to feed the sea gulls alka seltzer when underway and they did blow up, but I ain't sure about mice and noodles.

    The sea gulls cant throw up. Lol and swallow whole. My grandpa, an old time fisherman dead many years now did this also. I never seen it. But heard about it. He also tied chicken to opposite ends of a string. One gull ate one side on the other side was a second one. They ended up toed together and couldent fly. Down they went. He really hated seagulls.

    Probably not from Ramen noodles but some kind of mouse/rat poison can make them explode ... I think.

    I read a horror story on this forum about someone who had exploded mouse guts all throughout his camper when it was raised after winter.

    Anthony,
    Thank you for the 10 minutes of laughter. I left the Youtube running successive videos of other wild bubble animals. It is hilarious! Thank you

    Cayenne pepper keeps them away from our bird feeders. It is also quite comical when they first get a taste! We lace the seed with it.

    Thinking your right lol, Tomcat I believe makes a poison that comes in a green block, mice eat it then get thirsty; pretty sure that's the stuff a pal used, said not to use it inside as they will blow up...

    A gift for sure, & fun as hay to share at times, such as clearing a room etc, but can also be a curse, & get you an elbow in the head or upper torso, even a night on the couch...pick up some Penrose Hot Sausages, a jar of pickled eggs, & a 6 of PBR if you wanna find out how strong your marriage is [8D]

    Twentyish years ago, the DW threw away mice poison in the kitchen garbage. The dog broke into the house and ate it resulting in a mad dash to the vet. At the time there were 2 different types of poison. The one were the mouse ate it and drank water causing concrete constipation then there was the blood thinner so the veins couldn't hold the blood. Ours ate the blood thinner one.

    For exploding mice does a high velocity 22 centerfire bullet count?
