Reproduction in antechinomys laniger spenceri form marsupialia dasyuridae field and laboratory investigation



Reproduction in antechinomys laniger spenceri form marsupialia dasyuridae field and laboratory investigation



Australian Wildlife Research 11(3): 481-490



A. laniger is polyestrous, and animals from Sandringham Station in south-western Queensland [Australia] are in breeding condition from midwinter to midsummer. Laboratory observations suggest that photoperiod may be the proximate factor controlling the timing of the breeding season. Females enter estrus up to 6 times during the season, and as the season progresses the length of the estrous cycle decreases. The estimated length of gestation is 12 days or less. Females may rear up to 6 young. The young are weaned when about 3 mo. old and become sexually mature at 11.5 mo. Both males and females are potentially capable of breeding in more than one season. Higher than average rainfall may have led to a decline in the numbers of A. laniger on Sandringham Station.
