Reproduction of rhinolophus clivosus microchiroptera in natal south africa

Reproduction of rhinolophus clivosus microchiroptera in natal south africa

Zeitschrift fuer Saeugetierkunde 48(6): 321-329

The reproductive cycle of R. clivosus is studied. The reproductive cycle of adults was characterized by copulation in May, sperm storage (in the oviducts and uterine horns) throughout winter hibernation, ovulation and fertilization in Aug., and parturition in Dec. Immature females came into estrus in late Sept. and parturition occurred in late Jan., after a 3 1/2-4 mo. gestation. Spermatogenesis and follicular development were similar to those previously described for members of this genus.
