Thread: Muntjac Foetus

  1. #1

    Muntjac Foetus

    Pregnant uterus with scissors pointing to right ovary



    Uterus opened showing maternal caruncles

    [/URL

    Chorioallantoic membrane with fluid showing cotyledons which connect to maternal caruncles



    Amniotic sack containing foetus



    Foetus exposed showing umbilicus



    Trying to sex the foetus ? male I did examine it under 10 power



    ? antlerogenic tissue on frontal bones



    It has been my observation that muntjac pregnancy is always in the right uterine horn even though the corpus luteum can sometimes be in the left ovary. Would anyone like to comment on their findings ?

    Fantastic photos, how many weeks old would you guess the foetus is?
    I'm amazed you managed to sex it.

    I'd say just short of 2 months, but interested in what Morena says.

    We can sex cattle foetuses at this stage of pregnancy using ultrasound with decent accuracy. With the position of the genital tubercle I'd have gone for female, but this is the first muntjac foetus I have ever seen, so offering zero experience in this particular area!

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Great info, the last 2 muntjac doe's I've shot have both been pregnant with fairly well developed feotus's. I don't mind taking pics and posting if there's interest but they may not be as good at these and I certainly won't be using any big words!!

    That's if I get any more obviously but the amount we have around here it's only a matter of time,
