Description:

Desert Pygmy Mouse. Great amicable little creatures. Very similar to M.minutoides but the white below the ear appears to be a defining feature and the site is also outside of the range for minutoides.

Caught by sherman trap in dense but degraded savannah grassland dominated by Enneapogon cenchroides along the Gamagara River
