Intraspecific and interspecific behavioural interactions in the wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) and the yellow-necked mouse (Apodemus flavicollis) in a neutral cage

Intraspecific and interspecific behavioural interactions between captive wild-born mice were video-recorded and subsequently analysed. Altogether, 118 neutral cage dyadic encounters, each lasting 10 minutes, were carried out. In both intraspecific and interspecific tests, male-male interactions were apparently more agonistic than those female-female. A. flavicollis males spent more time performing agonistic behaviour than A. sylvaticus males. In both sexes, the heavier A. flavicollis was the regular winner of interspecific encounters.
