    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?

      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.
