A study of diurnal activity rhythms in Snow leopards and Lynx at Novosibirsk Zoo

A study of diurnal activity rhythms in Snow leopards and Lynx at Novosibirsk Zoo gibbons; it has allowed us to follow and better understand the growth and development of this endangered subspecies. The fact that only an examination of the external genitalia provides an unambiguous method of sexing juveniles, and that the appearance of certain characteristics (colour change in 9 9 ; subspecies-typical adult song in both sexes) is often delayed, underlines the necessity of studying further the entire biology of the species, something which should first be done in the field.

Abstract

gibbons; it has allowed us to follow and better understand the growth and development of this endangered subspecies. The fact that only an examination of the external genitalia provides an unambiguous method of sexing juveniles, and that the appearance of certain characteristics (colour change in 9 9 ; subspecies-typical adult song in both sexes) is often delayed, underlines the necessity of studying further the entire biology of the species, something which should first be done in the field.
