Oh Jeremy, you make me tres sad!  *wipes a tear away*.  Seriously, the
oxygen depletion would make for a wonderful separate balancing factor.  I
know you said it was complicated to put back in, but it might address the
mice issue, since their extraordinary reproduction might deplete the oxygen
supply much more quickly than the smaller number of larger prey animals.
You'd need an oxygen gauge as one of the controls.

I don't know how possible it would be to implement at this point, but if you
ever felt like doing so, I would cheer a lot.

Jeremy, I understand completely. Though in my opinion they must have some 
downside to them somewhere.

I personally consider only being able to have one land-dwelling pray animal 
a flaw, not something that adds more challenge.
