Abstract: Dormice are unique rodents due to hibernation, estivation and daily torpor. At this moment three dormouse species of four are recorded into Lithuania red book (2007): garden dormouse – 0 (Ex) category (Extinct/ believed to be extinct), fat dormouse – 2 (V) category (vulnerable species), and forest dormouse belongs to 3 (R) category (rare species). It is very important to know more about number of these endangered animals. In present study monitoring of dormouse were used more than 200 nestboxes in 6 different localities in Kaunas district (Būdų forest, Šešuva preserve, Vadų forest, Pravieniškių forest, Strošiūnų forest) during 2010 – 2013 years. After 2013 monitoring there were found 61 dormouse (30 fat dormouse, 23 forest dormouse and 8 common dormouse), all of them were weighed, sexed and aged. During 2010 – 2013 years were caught more than 240 dormouse (91 fat dormouse, 90 forest dormouse and 59 common dormouse. During monitoring it was concluded that slot-loading number better show dormouse population size than the set number of nestboxes and not on the same time collected data can skew the results of dormouse population size
