Abstract

A survey on small mammals was conducted at Sungai Kejar, Royal Belum Park, Perak on the 18th until 24th of August 2008. Throughout the sampling period, 10 mist nets, four Harp traps and 150 cage traps were deployed. The preliminary small mammal species list is presented for Sungai Kejar, Royal Belum Park, Perak using the information gained during the six days of sampling. A total of 24 individuals representing 13 species from 10 genera and five families of small mammals were recorded. Groundlevel trapping using 150 cage traps yielded five species of small mammals in the Order Rodentia with the trapping effort of 900 trap-days. The Polynesian Rat (Rattus exulans) was the most commonly trapped terrestrial small mammal. Eight species of bats from the Order Chiroptera were trapped with the accumulated effort of 84 trap-days. The most common species of bats captured was the Shortnosed Fruit Bat (Cynopterus brachyotis). The less common small mammal species captured in Sungai Kejar, Royal Belum Park were Kerivoula intermedia, Hipposiderous diadema, Hipposiderous cineraceus, Kerivoula papillosa, Rhinolophus trifoliatus, Balionycteris maculata, Chironax melanochepala, and Sundamys muelleri with only one individual per species.
