Utilization of plant and animal protein sources by the African giant rat (Cricetomys gambianus Waterhouse) and the albino rat



Utilization of plant and animal protein sources by the African giant rat (Cricetomys gambianus Waterhouse) and the albino rat



Tropical Veterinarian, 2: 164-171



For 14 days 8 weanling African giant rats (Cricetomys gambianus) and 8 weanling albino rats were given isonitrogenous diets with protein source as groundnut cake, blood meal and fish meal (diet 1) or groundnut cake alone (diet 2). Rats given diet 1 performed better except for digestibility of DM, crude protein, crude fibre and ether extract. The African giant rat performed better than the albino rat for all characteristics estimated.
