Primorye Week: Two Rodents (Myodes rutilus and Apodemus peninsulae)
This week, we’re meeting the mammals of Primorye, a region in far eastern Russia. (See yesterday’s musk deer for a little more about that fascinating area of the planet.) Well, it’s late and I’ve had a rough day, so…I don’t have much to say about these two rodents, other than that the one on the left is the northern red-backed vole and the one on the right is the Korean field mouse, and of course they both live in Primorye. Do enjoy the drawing, though, and I will probably be more loquacious on tomorrow’s mammal.
