Description: This chapter focuses on small mammals, reptiles, and amphibians that inhabit the grasslands within the Southwestern Region of the USDA Forest Service. The chapter is not intended to be an all inclusive list of species, but rather to address the species that play important roles in grassland ecosystems and that often are associated with the management of grasslands. Among the larger rodents discussed here are prairie dogs and pocket gophers. The small rodents include deer mice, voles, kangaroo rats, and pocket mice. Nonrodent species described in this chapter include the endangered black-footed ferret, as well as cottontail rabbits, jackrabbits, and bats. The herpetofauna include turtles and tortoises, lizards, snakes, frogs, toads, and salamanders.
