    A new species of snake was introduced to a tropical region. Scientists then noticed a steady decline in the presence of field mice and an increase in the number of snakes. Which of these is the most likely explanation about why the population size of each animal changed?

    The snakes introduced to the region dominated the habitat, forcing the mice to find another place to live.

    The mice became prey to the introduced snakes, allowing the snake population to increase but decreasing the mice population.

    The snakes introduced to the region competed with the mice for food, allowing the snake population to increase but decreasing the mice population.

    The people in the surrounding area set traps that killed the mice, allowing the snakes to live without any predators and therefore to increase in number.
