CAPTIVITY BEHAVIOUR AND POST-NATAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE SHREW CROC I DURA BICOLOR

Authors


Abstract

Captivity habits of Crocidura bicolor are described, including birth of a litter. PoBt-natal development of the young was found similar to that of Crocidura hirta, though somewhat quicker. The parent, already adult when captured, lived 332 days thereafter, and her surviving male offspring died at the age of 375 days. No further breeding took place.
