Description

This species of mouse is abundant on rocky cliffs and boulders at around 5700' elevation and higher.
N30.69053 W-104.08089

I have not identified this to species but think it is either the brush mouse, Peromyscus boylei, or maybe more likely, the white-ankled mouse, P. pectoralis, both of which occur in the habitat (DeBaca and Jones, Report on the mammals of the Davis Mountains Preserve, unpubl.)
