Abstract

Allosuckling behaviour is investigated in a captive population of Saharan arrui (Ammotragus lervia sahariensis). Allosuckling attempts are sporadic and usually unsuccessful (75%). The age of alien calves is strongly related to the age of allomother calves, and small differences in age between them are associated with successful allosuckling attempts. Young calves are alsomore successful when attempting allosuckling, although they undergo the most aggressive responses by the allomother. On the other hand, the two adoption instances observed took place in newborn calves. Neither the sex of thecalf nor his/her coefficient of relationship with the allomother has any influence on the success of allosuckling. A series of hypotheses is discussed in the light of the results obtained; such as mistaken identification of the mother, kinship and crowded captive conditions.
