The White-ankled Mouse is common in rocky areas in both dry and humid regions on the Central Plateau of Mexico and in west and central Texas, southern New Mexico, and Oklahoma. It clearly prefers rocky situations, whether it lives in forests or in brush-covered foothills. Many other Peromyscus mice share its range, as do woodrats, cotton rats, harvest mice, shrews, and squirrels.
