A mouse that has pockets

Plains pocket mice were one of the first species of mice that I caught as a wildlife biologist. In fact, I slid head first under Ray’s running but stationary truck in an attempt to catch it. Since that time, Ray and I have found many pocket mice on our travels. This one in particular was filmed at Caprock Canyons State Park and was found a short distance from our campsite scampering around in the prairie. In this Texas Wild segment,  Ray offers some information about the plains pocket mouse that is sure to surprise you!
