Tallahassee, Florida

I will be in Tallahassee, Florida for work in a couple of weeks. It is a short and busy trip but I’m hoping to at least have evenings to do quick mammal searches. In particular, I’m interested in round-tailed muskrat and marsh rabbit. If there are good spots for rodents or bats, that would be great, too.

    I haven’t seen the muskrat in that area, but St. Mark’s NWR has some appropriate habitat. It also has marsh rabbits. For bats and upland forest spp., try Florida Caverns.

    I would road cruise the Apalachicola National Forest SW of Tallahassee after the NWR closes. Your odds for the muskrat are low. I’ve put a pretty good amount of effort in over the last 10 years and have always come up empty. Your most likely mammals in the area are Raccoon, White-tailed Deer, Bobcat, Gray Fox, Black Bear, Eastern Cottontail, Nine-banded Armadillo, Marsh Rabbit, Striped Skunk, Hispid Cotton Rat, Eastern Gray Squirrel, Eastern Fox Squirrel,and Cotton Mouse. You could possibly tap a Southern Flying Squirrel out of a snag as well. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
