Reproduction and ecology of the hutia conga capromys pilorides



Reproduction and ecology of the hutia conga capromys pilorides



Poeyana Instituto de Zoologia Academia de Ciencias de Cuba (280): 1-20



Some aspects of the reproductive biology and of the ecology of the hutia conga (C. pilorides) are discussed. From March to Oct., 1980, 63 individuals (36 males and 27 females) were captured in forest, marshes and mangrove swamps, in 7 localities, to analyze the breeding condition of each animal. Surveys and observations of the populations were made. The most important data were: litters per year, 2; size of litter, from 1-6; minimal body length of the sexually mature animals, males 440 mm, females 416 mm; sexual ratio, 2 males to 1 female; feeding activity, nocturnal and adaptative strategy, type K.
