| Jico Deermice have big eyes and ears, broad feet, and long, tufted tails. They spend at least part of their time above the ground, in shrubs and vines. They are very similar to Chinanteco Deermice, and both live in mountainous habitat in Oaxaca, Mexico. However, Jico Deermice live at slightly lower elevations, and the two do not come into contact.
Head and body 80-140 mm; Tail 87-145 mm
