Reproduction in peradorcas concinna marsupialia macropodidae



Reproduction in peradorcas concinna marsupialia macropodidae



Australian Wildlife Research 13(4): 501-506



The length of the estrous cycle in captive Peradorcas concinna was 33.73 .+-. 1.65 days (n = 52). Females which were dominant over other females or were alone with their young had a cycle length of about 32 days and subordinate females had a cycle length of about 35 days. Some observations on the growth of the young are presented. Weaning is very abrupt; final pouch exit occurs about 2 weeks after the first pouch exit, and is caused by the female's aggressiveness towards its young.
