An experiment was conducted to know feed consumption and brief description of digestibility on bear cuscus (Ailurops ursinus) in the Small Mammal Captivity on Zoology Division, Research Center for Biology, Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), Bogor. The experiment material used three adult bear cuscus whose bodyweight are 5.90 kg, 6.10 kg, and 5.65 kg. The feedstuff consists of fruits: passion fruit (Passiflora edulis), banana (Musa sp.), rose apple (Syzygium aquaeum), guava (Psidium… Expand
Short Communication: Effect of different feed combination on the growth development of spotted cuscus (Spilocuscus maculatus) in captivity
It was concluded that cuscus required a combination of carbohydrate feed sources and animalprotein feed sources obtained from M. paradisiaca var. Expand
The diet of spotted cuscus (Spilocuscus maculatus) in natural and captivity habitat
The results indicated that there were 19 and 8 plant species identified as cuscus diets in both natural habitat and captivatingcondition, and cusus prefers fruits with astringent and sour taste which is contained high crude fiber and low fat. Expand

Digestive Physiology of the Ground Cuscus (Phalanger gymnotis), a New Guinean Phalangerid Marsupial
Results are consistent with reports that the natural diet of P. gymnotis is based largely on fruit rather than on foliage, and intake of digestible energy in captivity is similar to that of the Australian phalangerid Trichosurus vulpecula (common brushtail possum) in captivity. Expand
Food selection by black colobus monkeys (Colobus satanas) in relation to plant chemistry
It is proposed that relative importance of digestion-inhibitors, low nutrient content and toxins as constraints on food selection by generalist herbivores will vary greatly among forests with different nutrient and secondary chemistry profiles. Expand
Food selection by the South Indian leaf-monkey, Presbytis johnii, in relation to leaf chemistry
Additional data on mature leaf petioles and young leaves suggest that the high ratio of cell-sap to cell-wall in these items, and their related high digestibility, explain the high relative abundance of these items in the P. johnii diet. Expand
