Reproduction in the Plain Rock-Wallaby, Petrogale penicillata inornata Gould, in Captivity, with Age Estimation of the Pouch Young

PM Johnson

Australian Wildlife Research 6(1) 1 - 4
Published: 1979


'Reproduction in the plain rock-wallaby was studied in captivity. The oestrous cycle ranged from 30.2 to 32.0 days and the gestation period from 30.0 to 32.0 days. A post-partum mating usually followed birth; the resultant quiescent embryo developed and was born 28-30 days after premature removal of pouch young. The pouch life of the young ranged from 189 to 227 days, males and females maturing sexually at approximately 590 and 540 days respectively. Tail and hind foot lengths were found to be useful indicators of age of young up to the end of pouch life.
