Abstract

Between 1986 and 1987 we monitored association frequencies and distances of five young white-tailed deer siblings Odocoileus virginianus atthe National Zoo's Conservation and Research Center (CRC), Front Royal, Virginia, to determine their development in relation to their susceptibility to predation. Twin fawns were separated by their mother within the first few hours following parturition and were found isolated during the first three to four weeks. Subsequently, the isolation period was terminated by the mother, and twins were always guided to a communal bedding site. This was indicated by an increase in frequency of association and a decrease in distances between siblings. The results are discussed as consequences of selective adaptations to predation.
