Food habits of some neotropical carnivores in Venezuela (Mammalia, Carnivora)

INTRODUCTION Information about food habits of the carnivores of Venezuela is sparce and frequently anecdotal. Little work has been done to assess the importance of the carnivores as predators in the ecosystems that they occupy. Mondolfi (in Walker 1975) reported the stomach contents of 19 specimens of crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous). Montgomery and Lubin (1978) and Brady (1979) described the predatory behavior and provided notes about food habits of the crab-eating fox in the Llanos of Venezuela. Bisbal and Ojasti (1980) have listed the food of the crab-eating fox from 104 stomach contents. Mondolfi and Bisbal (in press) report the stomach contents of six specimens of gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargentus) from Venezuela. Mondolfi (1982) presented data of the diet and behavior of small wild cats and of jaguar in Venezuela. Other references to predation by these carnivores are unsupported by factual data. The carnivores mentioned in this work, are found in similar habitats but they exhibit different habits and morphological characteristics. Kinkajous Potos flavus) inhabit forests and are almost entirely arboreal, as suggested by their prehensil tails. By night they forage among the branches. Kinkajous are seen singly or in pairs (Nowak and Paradiso 1983).
