| San Lorenzo Deermice have long, soft fur and large, shell-shaped ears. They are not easily distinguished from the mainland species, Peromyscus eremicus. They live only on three islands in the northern Gulf of California, and are critically endangered. On many small islands, introduced cats have spelled doom for small rodents.
