The black-rumped agoutis
(Dasyprocta prymnolopha) were born in captivity, at a wildlife paddock of the Federal University of Para, Belem, Brazil (1[degrees]27'21"S-48[degrees]30'14" W).

Home range, population density, and food resources of Agouti
paca (Rodentia: Agoutidae) in Costa Rica: a study using alternative methods.
As important as the agouti
is to regeneration, humans are also central to the ecology of Brazil nuts.
The choice of species was based on Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon studies confirming the preference of hunters for peccaries, deer, agoutis
and pacas (Redford and Robinson, 1987; Bodmer et al.
Collection and evaluation of epididymal sperm in captive agoutis
The refreshed enclosure will ultimately feature a pair of sloths, set to arrive from Germany, agoutis
and leaf-cutter ants, as well as four South American jaguars.
SERUM VALUES OF UREA AND CREATININE IN AGOUTIS
(DASYPROCTA FULIGINOSA) RAISED IN A ZOO IN LIMA
During this program, 269 capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella), 27 black-howling monkeys (Allouata caraya), 12 coatis (Nasua nasua), 20 agoutis
Seeds that remain inside fruits will eventually rot whereas those buried by agoutis
often germinate and grow before the animal gets back to them.
Those not eaten by the agoutis
have a chance to germinate into seedlings.
While some of the species that suddenly appeared are related to the agoutis
and spiny rats that live in South America today, others belong to extinct lineages, says Wertheim.
Monkeys, bats, coat-imundis, agoutis
, wild boar, ocelots, anteaters, salamanders, vines, orchids and other epiphytes are some of the living things that frequent and flourish on shade-grown coffee farms, which some experts call "agroforests.
When the fruits fall to the ground, humans and large rodents called agoutis
compete for the harvest.
In the United States, we purchase shrink-wrapped chicken breasts from the supermarket; in Nassian, men trap bush rats and agoutis
in their fields and bring them home strapped to the back of bikes.
