Description:

Behaviour briefs, a short guide to animal behaviour, discusses the mammal species and behaviours you are most likely to encounter in the game parks of southern and East Africa. It is brief and will, we hope, whet your appetite for understanding what you see and interpreting the 'signposts' mammals leave. It's also worth reading Wild Ways by Peter Apps and The Behavior Guide to African Mammals by Richard Estes. On the subject of 'signposts', consult the authors' Field Guide to the Tracks & Signs of Southern, Central & East African Wildlife. Evolution selects for behaviour that improves the survival chances of the individual and so the species as a whole. Producing offspring is only the start - these young must live and, in turn, breed to ensure the long-term survival of their species. The challenge of all life is to feed, find a mate, breed, raise the young - ad infinitum. Why do animals behave as they do? The reasons can be categorised under one of the following headings:

• Maintaining and defending a territory or home range
• Attracting mates and breeding
• Keeping opposition away
• Social interaction
• Feeding
• Personal hygiene
