| Yucatán Deermice are fairly small, and fairly common in lowland deciduous and semi-deciduous forests. They have also been found in cornfields and dense grass. They are mainly terrestrial, though they climb low branches. These deermice breed year-round, producing litters of 1-4. Individuals from the southern part of the range are darker brownish than individuals from the north.
