The Habitat, external and cranial morphologies, and karyotype of Turkish specimens of Tatera indica are described for the first time with this study. It was determined that Tatera indica was located in uncultivated arid and semi-arid habitat in southeastern Turkey. Its external and cranial characteristics are consistent with those detailed in published papers. The karyotype of Tatera indica is composed of 2n = 68, NF = 84 and NFa = 80.
