Abstract

Using Indian crested porcupines Hystrix indica, sounds of feeding, drinking, sniffing, walking, threat huffs, moving in dense vegetation and digging were recorded from captive and leash-led subjects in the field. Briefly trained observers correctly identified 82 ± 12% of individual behaviors by sound, and had very accurate (93%) identifications of feeding and walking events. A prototype collar-mounted transmitter and receiver system enabled researchers to detect usable sound signals ≤1 km in the field. -from Authors
