The South American plains vizcacha, Lagostomus maximus (Rodentia: Chinchillidae), is a hystricognathe fossorial rodent that inhabits the Pampas region of Argentina extending up to the South of Paraguay and Bolivia [24].
Previous reports have shown that Lagostomus maximus displays a peculiar P4 profile during gestation, which is characterized by two well-defined stages: a first wave that begins to decline after approximately 70 days of pregnancy (d.p.), reaching a minimum around 100 d.p., and a second increase at 110-120 d.p., with a final decline at parturition time.
