The San Quintin Kangaroo Rat (Dipodomys gravipes) is a species of rodent in the family Heteromyidae.[2] It is endemic to Mexico, where it is known only from western Baja California. The natural habitat of the species is hot deserts. It is threatened by conversion of its habitat to agriculture. Despite intensive efforts, no specimens have been found since 1986 and the species may actually be extinct.[1]
