This species is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast. It has successfully colonized areas where it has been introduced and its population is increasing.
|Range Description:||This species ranges from Ethiopia and Eritrea, through Sudan and Egypt, Israel (introduced to Eilat), southwestern and northeastern Jordan, eastern Syria, Turkey (southeast Anatolia only), most of Iraq, western and southwestern Iran, northwestern, northern and eastern Saudi Arabia (with isolated central populations), southwestern Yemen, Kuwait, Qatar, northern United Arab Emirates, eastern and southern Oman, eastwards to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. It has been introduced to the USA (Texas) where it is currently believed to be expanding its range. The natural range of this species is not clear, since it appears to have been introduced over much of its range (S. Baha El Din pers. comm.). Populations on the African coast have almost certainly been introduced by human agency and the only report from Eritrea is that of Heyden in 1827, so there is considerable doubt about whether the species still survives in this country. This species can be found from sea level to 1,800 m above sea level.|
