In conclusion, this work contributed to understand the dynamic changes in progesterone levels during the pregnancy in agouti, comparing it to other hystricomorphs and associating it to the main events of embryonic development of this species.
The hystricomorph rodents, such as paca (Cuniculus paca), agouti (Dasyprocta sp.) and other wild mammals, serve as animal protein sources for local rural communities (Valsecchi, El Bizri, & Figueira, 2014; Van Vliet et al., 2015), which usually leads to overhunting in the Amazon.
In the suborder hystricomorph, this aspect would be associated with slow fetal growth, especially in the early embryological stages (Roberts, 1971).
In the literature, there is no information on the progesterone changes during the pregnancy of Dasyprocta sp., compared to other hystricomorph, such as Myoprocta pratti, Cavia porcellus, Galea musteloides, Dolichotis patagonum, Myocastor coypus, Erethizon dorsatum, Hystrix africaeaustralis, and Cuniculus paca (Rowlands, Tam, & Kleiman, 1970; Challis, Heap, & Illingworth, 1971; Tam, 1973; Louis, Somes, Pryor, & Blankenship, 1986; Van Aarde & Potgieter, 1986; Jakubicka, Barta, Nitray, & Szeleszczukova, 1989; Barta & Jakubicka, 1991; Sweitzer & Holcombre, 1993; Van Wyk, Van Aarde, & Louw, 1994; Ribeiro et al., 2012).
