One beach mouse subspecies, the Pallid beach mouse, already has become extinct. Of the remaining seven, only the Santa Rosa beach mouse — found on Eglin Air Force Base and Gulf Island National Seashore — is not listed as endangered or threatened.

Critical habitat was designated for these Pallid beach mouse. With a minute left, Harvey claims that he took biology and the answer is 0 since the Pallid beach mouse has been extinct for years. We sequenced each base from at least two independent PCR products to confirm any polymorphisms. Nygma’s side of the plan, however, goes awry when Harvey was able to answer his riddle by saying that the pallid beach mouse is extinct. declared extinct—the Pallid beach mouse (P. p. decoloratus). We were able to amplify the complete Mc1r-coding region in only two PBMs by generating seven overlapping PCR fragments. In Alabama, the Alabama beach mouse is listed as Endangered. What You Can Do. Coast) is not listed and the Pallid beach mouse (Atlantic) was declared extinct in 1993. The Perdido Key beach mouse was listed as Endangered in 1985, along with the Alabama beach mouse and the Choctawhatchee beach mouse.
