Springhare + Squirrel Monkey

Pedetes capensis + Saimiri sciureus



Pedetes capensis [Springhare]
+ Saimiri sciureus [Common Squirrel Monkey] This entry is not to record a report about hybridization, but rather one about mixed mating. Morris (1970, p. 502) says a male squirrel monkey (a primate) repeatedly attempted to mate with a female springhare (a rodent) with which it was caged. This illustrates the fact that even the most disparate types of animals will attempt to mate given the proper circumstances.
