Playful interactions in family groups of the common marmoset callithrix jacchus jacchus


Playful interactions in family groups of the common marmoset callithrix jacchus jacchus



Animal Behaviour 30(3): 886-900

Play behavior in 6 family groups of common marmosets (C. j. jacchus) is described. Playful behavior patterns comprised a distinct repertoire of behavior and the patterns formed ordered sequences. The differences in the play of adults and offspring are described and analyzed. Adult play was infrequent and most took the form of adult-offspring interactions; it contained fewer bouts of chasing and was less active, and adults elicited fewer bouts. No differences attributable to sex could be determined in the play of offspring and the only pattern that decreased with age was bouncing gait. Possible partner preferences were analyzed, and marmoset twins showed an overall preference for playing with the twin. The vocalizations heard during bouts of play were recorded and analyzed and their relationship to non-playful vocalization discussed; during bouts of play younger animals vocalized to older animals. Marmoset play wrestling differed in form from aggressive wrestling, and patterns occurred during aggressive interactions which were not observed in play. The play of marmosets is discussed with regard to the socioecology of the species and compared to the play of other mammalian species.
