Agouti at Papillote Wilderness Retreat

The red-rumped agouti (Dasyprocta leporina) is endemic to the rainforests of Dominica. The agouti resembles a short-eared rabbit, but is more closely related to the guinea pig. At Papillote Wilderness Retreat and Tropical Gardens, the agouti can be seen foraging for fallen fruits and other vegetarian food items on the trails around the Bird Watching House in the early morning and near dusk.

Barba Azul Nature Reserve – Agouti Motacu Seed Dispersal

Seed dispersal by the Agouti is an important part of the forest ecosystem. This video shows the diligent efforts this mammal goes through to cache, but also plant Motacu Fruit and the seed in the Palm forest islands of the Barba Azul Nature Reserve.

The combined camera trap videos show how important the Agouti is in the seed dispersal of the Motacu palm. On December 16th, we witness the Agouti take over 40 Motacu Palm fruits (with the seed) and disperse them through-out the forest. Notice the Agouti does not eat a single fruit where they have fallen. It picks up a fruit, takes it to another area, and then eats only the fruit- not the seed; or picks up a fruit to take to another area to bury. Also notice that the Agouti takes the fruits to all different parts of the forest, not following a single route.

For a tree, needing the mutualism of a mobile animal to disperse its fruit, this is the ideal seed disperser. The Agouti is dispersing all the seeds, and in many different areas in the forest. It is not just dropping the seed, but actually burying the seed in the ground, improving the possibilities of germination.
