Juveniles, <1 month of age, gray pelage (fur), and weight <15 g); subadults, weight >15 g and not in breeding condition (undescended testes or imperforate vagina); adults, weight >15 g and in breeding condition (descended testes or perforate vagina, visible nipples, or visibly pregnant). Gaps in the plots indicate that no trapping was conducted during these periods.
