Effects of food supplementation on litter size and oestradiol concentration during gestation and oestrous cycle of capybaras (Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris) in captivity
The present study analysed the response of adult female capybaras (Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris) to different dietary supplementation in relation to litter size per parturition and oestradiol secretion profile during pregnancy and the oestrous cycle. All four experimental groups received 'camerum' grass (Pennisetum purpureum) and water ad libitum and three of the groups were also fed a protein, lipid or protein and lipid supplement. Litter size per parturition did not show any significantdoi:10.1530/rep.0.1250579 pmid:12683928 fatcat:n62dqx4z6bbopjdhhw6hvbxufm
