Range Description

So far, Crocidura ramona is known only from Israel (Ivanitskaya et al. 1996). It is found in three regions: Mizpe Ramon and Sede Boqer in the Negev Desert, and Sartaber at the northern edge of the Judean Desert (Ivanitskaya et al. 1996). It is likely that the species occurs more widely in the region than currently known (i.e., in Jordan where similar habitats and Crocidura species have not been well surveyed) (G. Shenbrot pers. comm). The three locations in which the species occur are rocky desert areas at altitudes between 200 and 950 metres above sea level.
