The Desert Kangaroo Rat, Dipodomys deserti, is a rodent species in the family Heteromyidae that is found in desert areas of southwestern North America. It is one of the large kangaroo rats, with a total length greater than 12 inches (30cm) and a mass greater than 3.2oz (91g).


The Desert Kangaroo Rat is found in arid parts of southwestern North America, including Death Valley, the Great Basin, the Mojave Desert, and portions of the Sonoran Desert.


Desert Kangaroo Rats are denizens of desert areas with sandy soil; vegetation is typically sparse and consists of creosote bush, a variety of grasses, and cacti.; they sleep in a den, which is sealed off at extreme temperatures, during the day. Groups of 6-12 widely-spaced burrows may constitute a colony of this species, which is otherwise solitary.
