Reproduction data concerning 2 forms of the hutia conga capromys pilorides rodentia caviomorpha



Reproduction data concerning 2 forms of the hutia conga capromys pilorides rodentia caviomorpha



Poeyana Instituto de Zoologia Academia de Ciencias de Cuba (345): 1-6



In research conducted during 2 years at lsla de la Juventud, Cuba, it was found that the hutia conga (Capromys pilorides) may be found in different stages of gestation in any month of the year, though periods of higher reproductive activity do occur during the year. The highest percentages of gestating females were found in December and January, while the largest number of females carrying large embryos occur in May and July. The most probable number of offsprings per partum was found to be three, but four or five are not unusual. These results are discussed in relation with climatic conditions and season of greatest food abundance.
