Pack Rat (Neotoma cinerea)


The Pack Rat, also known as the Busy-Tailed Woodrat, builds nests out of twigs and branches outside of small caves and holes called “middens.” These nests are used, not only as a home, but for protection from predators. You can see a Pack Rat nest in front of this post. It may look like a bundle of sticks up against a log.
