This report describes a new behavioristic mutation, shaker, of the house mouse, which expresses itself in the form of nervous head movements, circling and deafness, and which behaves in inheritance as a single gene character, recessive to the normal and not sex linked. It differs somewhat in its expression from waltzing, and is shown to be due to a different factor or gene from that of waltzing.
