|Scientific Name:||Acomys percivali Dollman, 1911|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Contributor(s):||Schlitter, D. & Dieterlen, F.|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, it occurs in a number of protected areas, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species has been recorded from southern Sudan (east of the White Nile River), northeastern Uganda, southwestern Ethiopia and from Kenya. It occurs down the Rift Valley.

|Population:||It is a common species, that has cyclic population fluctuations.|
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It occurs on lava strewn rocky plains, in sparse to bare areas. This is an insectivorous species. It is not known if the species can persist in disturbed or modified habitats.|
|Generation Length (years):||1-2|
|Major Threat(s):||There are no major threats to this species. Much of its range is only occupied by pastoralists and there is a low human density.|
|Conservation Actions:||It is found in Samburu and Buffalo Springs in northern Kenya (the type locality), and Omo Reserve in Ethiopia.|
|Errata reason:||This errata assessment has been created because the map was accidentally left out of the version published previously.|
