The results concerning the relationship between body weight or heart rate and blood flow velocity in this species were more controversial: some authors showed no correlation between blood flow measurements and body weight or heart rate, whereas others demonstrated a positive relationship between blood flow measurements and the heart rate, and a negative relationship between blood flow measurements and body weight [6, 7, 14, 15].
