Yesterday while very driving slowly on a dirt road in horrendous condition a vole darted out in front of us. It must have caught sight of our car and attempted to make a u-turn but was moving too fast for the manuever and suffered a "rollover". Never saw anything like that before.

Closest thing was watching a young tom cat try to "skin the cat" (and then some). He was waiting one side of door, another cat on the other side, with a (deer)mouse between them. Now deer mice are very much faster than the mice with which you are familiar and will dash across an open space. Threatened by the cat on the other side, the mouse came through the crack under the door and instead of panicking/freezing when it saw the tom waiting went full speed between that cat's front legs and out through the rear legs. The young tom tried to follow (beneath his own front legs) and the resulting summersault was spectacular.
