Diurnal behavior of the agrimi, Capra aegagrus
Date of Original Version
Capra aegagrus cretensis on Theodorou Island Wildlife Preserve, Greece, have seasonal and daily activity patterns that minimize their exposure to high ambient temperatures. There were significant differences in time spent lying, standing, feeding, and moving among subsets of the population classified by sex, season, and time of day. Agrimi usually were solitary, but they often formed small groups that varied in both age and sex composition. There was an age-and sex-specific dominance hierarchy with older, consequently larger, males being dominant. -from Authors
