The final stage in the reproductive cycle of the hare lepus europaeus






Mammalia 41(2): 221-230

The final stage in the reproductive cycle of the hare lepus europaeus

The final stage of the breeding cycle of the hare was studied from Sept.-Dec. 1975 through hunters. The lactating females were controlled in the hunting bags of 4 territories in the north of France. The data concerning pregnant females were collected through inquiries to hunters from other territories. Juvenile females born at the beginning of the breeding season can be reproductive from the age of 5 or 6 mo. These juvenile females take a small part in the total annual production of young. The average size of the litter is 2 (from 1-4 embryos)/female. Lactating females who have embryos at an early stage are found, until the end of Sept. but other lactating females are found until the beginning of Nov.
