FXOS8700CQ x, y, z ranges not all the same?

I am getting data from a FXOS8700CQ and the ranges are:


X: -160 to +200 uT

Y: -160 to +190 uT

Z: +35 to +350 uT


Are these accurate values? (I am in Santa Ana, CA if that makes any difference). Since the magnetometer only measures the magnetic field of the Earth, shouldn't the Z range also be -160 to +200 uT? Is there something wrong with the Z range?
