Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits treeless, grasslands and dry shrublands in temperate-cold arid Patagonia and restricted portions of the Monte ecoregions. The diet consists of insects, mice, small birds and probably fruits, depending on abundance and availability (Martin 2008, Martin and Udrizar Sauthier 2011, Geiser and Martin 2013, Zapata et al. 2013). This species is mainly terrestrial but can climb well, and dig into light substrates (Martin and Udrizar Sauthier 2011).
