Observations of antipredator behavior in two troops of free-rangingLemur catta were made during a 13-month study ofL., catta feeding ecology. Both responses to and frequency of encounters with other species were recorded. Ringtailed lemur antipredator calls differentiated between terrestrial and avian predators.
