Poster Information
Abstract: we examined chevrotains (Moschiola sp.,) from Sri Lankan national zoological gardens and Department of Zoology, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, and found major differences within the average body measurements of White spotted chevrotain and Yellow striped chevrotain. Based on the cohesion of these differences we developed a standard information sheet for yellow striped chevrotain: Moschiola kathygre from wet Zone in Sri Lanka. Summary: Head and body length in the species is normally 43–51 cm. Dorsally, it is a warm yellowish brown in color with at least two light yellow stripes longitudinally along flanks separated by a row of light yellow spots. Two distinct stripes along back plus another below the tail, all are pale yellow in color. Fur is fine and coarse. Tusk-like upper canines are visible in males.References: Personal CommunicationReport abuse »
