ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION OF SNOWSHOE HARES (LEPUS AMERICANUS) AND THE TRANSFER OF THEIR FERTILIZED EGGS TO THE RABBIT (ORYCTOLAGUS CUNICULUS)

in Reproduction

Summary.

Intra-uterine insemination of ten Snowshoe hares with rabbit spermatozoa resulted in the fertilization of 10% of the eggs. Following the intravaginal insemination of Snowshoe hares with epididymal hare spermatozoa and intravenous injection of hcg about 90% of the eggs were fertilized and two living young were born in captivity. When eleven, two-cell hare eggs were transferred into the Fallopian tubes of four rabbits, development to the blastocyst stage was possible, but decidua formation and implantation failed.
