Predation in populations of small mammals is a rarely observed event (Pearson, 1985); however, the role of predators in population regulation often is considered to be important. Documentation and assessment of mortality factors are especially critical when considering the population dynamics of threatened or endangered species. Herein, we document interactions of the endangered Mt. Graham red squirrel with potential predators.
