Abstract

This paper reports a study of prenatal growth of cottontail rabbits on the Welder Wildlife Refuge in South Texas. Measurements of known-age cottontails showed that the young in utero were smaller than Missouri rabbits of the same ages. However, they were similar in size at birth. A prenatal curve was fitted by hand for crown-rump length; hind foot length and body weight data were also presented.
