Commercial harvesting of giant lizards: The biology of water monitors Varanus salvator in southern Sumatra
The influence of sex and body size on food habits of a giant tropical snake, Python reticulatus
Females shifted from rats to larger mammals at a smaller body size than did conspecific males, and feeding frequencies increased more rapidly with body size in females than in males, enhancing the degree of sex difference in trophic ecology induced by sexual size dimorphism.
The allometry of life-history traits: insights from a study of giant snakes ( Python reticulatus )
Strong intraspecific allometry was evident for most of the life-history traits measured, including reproductive output, and these giant pythons were near or beyond the extremes reported for smaller species of snakes, supporting the importance of allometry.
Herpetofaunal Richness and Community Structure of Offshore Islands of Sulawesi, Indonesia 1
We examined the distribution and broad habitat associations of the herpetofauna on three offshore islands of southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. A total of 74 amphibian and reptile taxa were recorded,…

Fossil marsupials (Macropodidae, Peroryctidae) and other mammals of Holocene age from Halmahera, North Moluccas, Indonesia
Faunal remains from Gua (cave) Siti Nafisah, central Halmahera, reveal that until at least 1,870 ybp, Halmahera supported a non-volant mammal fauna which was predominantly of New Guinean origin. It…

Three major t-SINE subfamilies could be distinguished on the basis of characteristic nucleotides, deletions, insertions, and duplications that reveal that they are derived copies of distinct progenitors.
Records of Theobald's tomb bat, Taphozous theobaldi Dobson, 1872 (Chiroptera : Emballonuridae) from Borneo and Sulawesi
The fact that Fl was pregnant perhaps has had any influence in this apparent change in the hierarchic order, considering that M l, by its behaviour, was not likely to be very hungry and it showed defficiences in its pelage that could mean illness.
