Food preference studies of the larger bandicoot rat bandicota indica



Food preference studies of the larger bandicoot rat bandicota indica



Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences Animal Sciences 92(1): 43-48



The food preferences of the South-Asian commensal rat, B. indica were studied to evolve a suitable bait for control. Among cereals, rice in its whole/divided form was preferred. Among additives 7-10% groundnut oil enhanced bait intake significantly; 2% salt and sugar did not influence the rat's diet choice. Thus whole/broken rice mixed with 7-10% groundnut oil is the most attractive bait for poisoning B. indica.
