Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Allegheny woodrat, Neotoma magister, is a species of "pack rat" in the genus Neotoma. Once believed to be a subspecies of the Eastern Woodrat or Florida Woodrat, Neotoma floridana, extensive DNA analysis has proven it to be a distinct species.The Allegheny woodrat is a medium-sized rodent resembling an oversized White-footed Mouse more than the Borway Rat. It is the second largest member of the native North American rats and can weigh up to a pound, roughly the size of an eastern gray squirrel. Typical or average size is about 325-375 grams for an adult. An adult woodrat ranges about 15 to 18 inches in length whereas 7 to 8 inches of this is tail. The fur is long, soft, and brownish-gray or cinnamon in color, while the undersides and feet are white. They have large eyes, naked ears, and long whiskers.show more
