Abstract

is likely that the rhythms of both species are stable in the wild. 3. As an animal is likely to suffer some ill effects if its biological pattern of activity is disturbed by captive conditions, it is important that the daily regime of captive felids is studied so as to coincide feeding times with natural peaks of activity which, in Snow leopards, was found to be 0700 - 0800 hours and in the Lynx 1600 hours. Studies of this kind are also relevant to other aspects of animal husbandry, such as housing.
