Abstract

Despite their ecological importance, small mammals record in east-coast of Peninsular Malaysia is particularly rare and scattered, as compared to records made in west of Peninsular Malaysia. In this paper, we assembled data from various trapping occasions conducted at surrounding areas of Tasik Kenyir, Hulu Terengganu, including Taman Negara Terengganu, from 1990 to present. We documented 55 spe- cies of bats and 19 species of non-volant small mammals, mainly of rats and squirrels. This represent approximately 30% of the total non-marine mammal species reported for Peninsular Malaysia, indicating the important of Hulu Kenyir forest areas as conservation area for small mammals.
