When the abundance of small mammals was higher (dry season), the hawks selected the more abundant prey, Calomys tener (Table 2).

A different genus, Calomys
laucha, was responsible for most cases in Paraguay associated with Laguna Negra virus (LNV) (6).
Persistent infection after intranasal infection with Junin virus can increase deaths, reduce growth, and markedly reduce reproductive efficiency in its reservoir host, Calomys musculinus (16).
