Of 369 hares examined, 160 had a total of 810 disseminules of 17 plant species in their fur. The six commonest plants were Tragus berteronianus, Achyranthes aspera, Pupalia lappacea, Boerhavia repense, Harpachne schimperi, and Themeda triandra. Female hares carried almost three times as many burs as did males. The incidence of zoochory by wild mammals seems unexpectedly variable in different regions
