Intragroup agonistic behavior in captive groups of the common marmoset callithrix jacchus jacchus


Intragroup agonistic behavior in captive groups of the common marmoset callithrix jacchus jacchus



International Journal of Primatology 5(5): 473-490



ISSN/ISBN: 0164-0291

Agonistic behavior was observed in 5 captive groups of the monogamous monkey C. jacchus, which normally produces twin offspring every 5 mo. Fighting is 1st recorded when twins are aged 5-10 mo. These twin fights determine differences in status between combatants that can be detected 5 mo. later. From what is known of the social behavior of the species, it is postulated that an individual's twin is its most serious rival and that early fighting is advantageous because injury is minimal while the animal retains its milk dentition. In contrast to twin fights, aggression between same-sex juveniles and adults does not involve long fights and probably serves to reinforce preexisting differences in status. It often results in forcing a group member to the periphery; its main function may be to drive mature, same-sexed individuals out of the group. Apart from the relationship between twins, status within the family group is age related and not normally determined by aggression.
