Abstract

Harassment behavior during mounting was observed in a group of moor macaques (Macaca maurus) in Sulawesi, Indonesia. During the study periods in 1994 and 1995, most harassment was performed by juveniles less than 5 years old. No harassment by adult females was observed. Mountingby the alpha-male, who had newly immigrated to the group, was harassed more frequently than that by the beta-male in 1994. In 1995, the frequency of harassment during mounting by the alpha-male was low as compared with that in 1994. In the case of the new alpha-male, harassment occurred more frequently during mounting with sexually tumescent females than during mounting with detumescent females. Harassment was rarely observed during mounting by natal males of the group. Many hypotheses have been proposed to explain harassment of mounting in primates. The present results offer support for the following two hypotheses: (1) harassment is an attempt to establish a social bond between the performer and the mounting individuals; or (2) harassment occurs in responseto mounting by unfamiliar males.
