Across the continent
Not like the others
They are commonly found in Upland Sonoran Desert scrub, Chihuahuan Desert scrub and Semidesert Grassland communities. They seem to prefer areas where the ground is relatively flat with many, open sunny patches. These diurnal predators are most active during the many warm spring and fall days. They burrow into the soil to seek shelter from the desert winter cold but will become active on unseasonably warm winter days.
