    Venkat suggested that the change from pale to dark k-mouse at the same location could be due to the switch from dry to wet years, as the former prefers more arid habitats. Could be true: pale k-mouse hasn’t been recorded from Mono Lake before, but 2012-2015 was the worst drought on record.

    It’s quite an achievement that you found white-eared pocket mice. Did you trap them?

    • vdinets Says:

      No, just found by spotlighting. Trapping in the nearby Desert Tortoise Natural Area didn’t work at all although there were lots of rodents running around.
