Field Evidence for Colony Size and Aseasonality of Breeding and in Ansell's Mole-Rat,Fukomys anselli(Rodentia: Bathyergidae)
Ansell's mole-rat, Fukomys anselli, is a cooperatively breeding bathyergid endemic to the Lusaka Province of Zambia. During a 12-month field study involving the capture of 33 colonies of mole-rats, the number of occupants, breeding females and sex ratio within colonies were recorded. While thirty of these social groups contained a single breeding queen, three were found to exhibit plural breeding among females, having two queens present simultaneously. Mean ± S.E.M. colony size was 8.7 ± 2.2doi:10.3377/004.046.0212 fatcat:ml4jekmjqrenlhq7cebpca5mxa
