Marking and appropriation of food imitation and learning in the european wild boar sus scrofa



Marking and appropriation of food imitation and learning in the european wild boar sus scrofa



Zeitschrift fuer Jagdwissenschaft 26(3): 126-132



In a wild boar enclosure in Austria, an individual several years old was observed smell marking and defending food. Apples were smell marked with urine and saliva. Young animals did not eat this food after having tested it by sniffing, although the marking .male. did. The wild boar defended his feeding ground against men. In the process, he showed in a weaker or ritualized form behavioral patterns from the innate characteristics of parading, threatening and fighting. There is a report of an old boar in which acoustic impulses (the noises of a food container being used by another boar) triggered off a demonstration of rank and appropriation at the feeding ground. This trigger was more forceful than avoidance of the enemy. A case of imitation and learning in the overcoming of an obstacle was discussed.
