Comparison of behaviour of serval Leptailurus serval and ocelot Leopardus pardalis in zoos Porownanie zachowania sie serwala Leptailurus serval i ocelota Leopardus pardalis w ogrodzie zoologicznym
The knowledge of behaviour and activity of small felids is rather scanty. On the basis of observations of two pairs of serval (Leptailurus serval) and three specimens of ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) kept in Polish zoos an attempt was undertaken to describe the ethogram of these species. The specimens of both species retained to various degree forms of behaviour shown by cats in the wild (e.g. predatory tendencies, scent marking behaviour, social behaviour etc.). Some differences between species (e.g. locomotion pattern, susceptibility to stress, vocal communication) and between sexes were also recorded. The authors described some interesting forms of behaviour hithero not observed and related to scent marking behaviour and courtship.
