Haig's tuco-tuco, known regionally as the Patagonian tuco-tuco, is a South American hystricognath rodent. Like other tuco-tucos it is subterranean and thus not often observed, although the "tuc-tuc" call of the males can be heard near burrow sites, especially in early morning. Like most species in the genus Ctenomys, C. haigi are solitary, with one adult per burrow.
