This paper describes the feeding behaviour ofRousettus leschenaulti Desmarest, 1820 on lychees, the preferred cultivated food of this bat in captive conditions. We found that feeding comprised 25–30% of the total activity of these animals in a flight cage and that feeding durations were not significantly different between two sexes. To evaluate the role of(More)
Correlations of two species of gamasid mites (Macronyssus pararadovskyi and M. radovskyi) and their bat hosts (Tylonycteris pachypus and T. robustula) were studied by field surveys and indoor behavioral experiments. The wild data indicated that mite load was positively correlated with body condition index of female T. pachypus hosts (Spearman: r (s)=0.55,(More)
Grooming behavior is evolved in animals in response to the costs associated with ectoparasites. In this study, ecotparasite densities and grooming behavior-including licking and scratching-of wild-caught lesser bamboo bat (Tylonycteris pachypus) and greater bamboo bat (T. robustula) were analyzed. The results indicated that both the frequencies and(More)
