Pedetes capensis [Springhare]
+ Saimiri sciureus [Common Squirrel Monkey] During the course of research for this book, no reports of hybrids of this type were encountered, but Morris (1970, p. 502) says a male squirrel monkey (a primate) caged with a female springhare (a rodent) repeatedly attempted to mate with it, which illustrates the fact that even the most disparate types of animals will attempt to mate given the proper circumstances.
