Neotoma bryanti ssp. martinensis Goldman

San Martin Island Woodrat (Neotoma bryanti ssp. martinensis)

The San Martín Island Woodrat was restricted to the Isla San Martín offshore the coast of Baja California Norte, Mexico.

Like its close relative, the Anthony’s Woodrat (Neotoma bryanti ssp. anthonyi J. A. Allen) on the Isla Todos Santos, this form was extirpated by feral cats that had been introduced to the island.
