Description: A variety of terrestrial small mammals with diverse size, form, geo- graphic range, and ecological niche inhabit southern forests. Some are highly specialized for their environment, such as the semi-aquatic species or fossorial species, such as moles. Some, such as the cotton rat, are widely distributed throughout the region and others highly restrictive in their range and habitat. Because of their secretive and often nocturnal nature, most small mammals are not apparent to the casual observer, but they are prominent in southern forests.
