House Musk Shrews (Suncus murinus) Do Not Copulate in the Light Period when First Paired in the Dark
AbstractThe copulatory behavior pattern of house musk shrews paired for 24 h starting at either 09:00 (light) or 20:00 (dark) was investigated. Ejaculatory behaviors were observed in both light and dark periods, when mating was started at 09:00. However, the males ejaculated only in the dark period when they were paired at 20:00.
