(2011) observed that the origin of the femoral nerve in the rock cavy (Kerodon rupestris) in general changed between the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh lumbar spinal nerves, presenting symmetry at the source between the right and left antimeres in 80% and asymmetry in 20% of specimens, resembling in part the results obtained in this study.
In the rock cavy (Kerodon rupestris), Oliveira et al.
acrobata showed the same diploid number, fundamental number and chromosome morphology as Kerodon rupestris. But its NOR location and heterochromatin distribution patterns indicated a unique cytogenetic profile when compared to its sister species, emphasizing the evolutionary uniqueness of this relatively new and unknown species.
acrobata apresentou o mesmo numero diploide, numero fundamental e morfologia dos cromossomos de Kerodon rupestris. Mas a localizacao de sua NOR e os padroes de distribuicao de heterocromatina indicam um perfil citogenetico unico quando comparado com sua especie irma, enfatizando a singularidade evolutiva desta especie pouco conhecida.

Lacher, Willig, and Mares (1982) studied the food preference of a florivorous rodent (kerodon rupestris) for different species of leaves at different levels of availability.
Direct support for the prediction has been found for other birds (Parus major: Krebs et al., 1977; Motacilla sp.: Davies, 1977) and a variety of mammals including marten, Martes americana (Thompson and Colgan, 1990), otters, Lutra lutra (Watt, 1995), and rodents, Kerodon rupestris (Lacher et al., 1982).
Kerodon rupestris (Wied, 1820) is the most specialized species among caviid rodents and it is considered endemic to the extensive rocky outcrops that occur in the Caatinga semi-arid region in Brazil, from Piaui State to northern Minas Gerais State (Lacher, 1979, 1981; Alho, 1982; Mares and Ojeda, 1982; Oliveira et al., 2003; Lessa and Pessoa, 2005).
