Description

Saw this dead mouse on the forest floor. No apparent cause of death.

Whitish gray belly, large ears, long pink snout, tail about the same length as the body. The body was about 2-3 inches long. I turned it over and its back was a darker gray; sides were brown.

I'm guessing it's a pinyon mouse because of the large floppy ears.

Description

I encountered this juvenile mouse in the exterior environment of a residential area, but just one meter from a relatively intact oak woodland. His right rear leg appeared injured, but he was able to engage in locomotion fairly well. So i assisted him in re-entering the woodland, where he would be safer. I hope he is recovering. I deemed his prospects better to survive in the native environment, rather than to stress him with captivity and transport to the nearest wildlife rescue, which would be closed at the late hour.

Description from Wikipedia

Peromyscus truei (Shufedlt, 1885) or the pinyon mouse, is native to the southwestern United States and Baja California in Mexico. These medium sized mice are often distinguished by their relatively large ears. The range of this species extends from southern Oregon and Wyoming in the north, and extends south to roughly the U.S.-Mexico border, with a disjunct population designated as Peromyscus truei comanche which occupies an area in the vicinity of Palo Duro Canyon in the...
