Habitat comments: "The ranch covers about 1, 760 ha, out of which approximately half consists of cattle pasture and corn plantations and half of native (although not unaltered) habitats... The original Cerradão vegetation has been almost entirely eradicated in the study area... All natural habitats were used extensively by the cattle... Recreational hunting by ranch hands has been normal practice in the region previously; however, the amount of hunting has diminished significantly within recent years"; there is "a warm rainy season (typically October–March) and a colder dry season (April–September)"
