Pygmy Fruit Bat - Biology and Ecology

Biology and Ecology

Two adult females and an adult male collected from Bario were in a non-reproductive condition. Kitchener et al. (1990) reported a pregnant female collected on Lombok Island in October. Hill (1961) observed pregnancy in February and May in Peninsular Malaysia. Medway (1978) recorded that the months between February to June was the breeding period for the species. This species appears to be confined to montane forest above 1,000 m (Payne et al. 1985).
