The present study provides a list of small mammals from the coastal south part of the state of Bahia. Live-traps were settled in Atlantic Forest fragments where cacao (Theobroma cacao) plantations are widespread. During a short-term inventory performed in February 2003, 13 specimens from eight species of small mammals were collected.
