E-mail: email@example.com This study was conducted aiming to evaluate the hematologic aspects both in the red series (eritrogram) and the white series (leucogram) of the Agouti paca species reared in captivity conditions and to verify possible differences related to animal sexes. To this study 11 adult animals (six females and five males) were used, adopting the completely randomized design. Collect of blood samples and the hematologic analysis were done with no stress to the animals. Results showed that blood elements of the eritrogram had no effect over the sex, except to the hematocrit that presented higher values to the males. In the leukocyte analysis, monocytes and eosinophils were different statistically when related to the sex, both with higher values to the females.
