In Amboseli National Park, Kenya, both superb starlings, Spreo superbus, and vervet monkeys, Cercopithecus aethiops, give acoustically different alarm calls to different classes of predators. The ‘raptor alarms’ of starlings and vervet monkeys are so called because they are given exclusively to avian species that attack from the air. In contrast, while vervets give ‘leopard alarms’ to a narrow array of terrestrial predators, starlings give terrestrial predator alarms to a wide variety of… Expand
