Questions: S latimanus breeding / life cycle


Feb 5, 2004
Questions about S latimanus:

1) When is mating season for S latimanus in Lembeh, Sulawesi, Indonesia? Is the time of year location specific or is mating season the same time all over SE Asia for example?
2) How long does their mating season last?
3) Do both males and females die soon after mating? How long after?
4) How does mating season affect hunting / eating habits of males & females - increase, decrease, cessation?

Any references to support answers are also gratefully received.

Thanks in advance for any help :smile:
