שלום!

Does אורך חייו של עכבר מצוי mean "The life span of a mouse is ordinary."?

מצוי = ordinary (passive participle from למצוא, literally: found)
עכבר = mouse
אורך = length
חייו = life

תודה רבה!

    It's not a sentence. מצוי is used in zoological/botanical nomenclature to mean "common", so it means "the lifespan of a common mouse".
