Abstract Stotting in Thomson's gazelles ( Gazella thomsoni ) was found to have a negligible time cost in slow flights and it was normally shown in safe situations when prey were unlikely to be captured. [...] Key Method Eleven hypotheses concerning the benefits of stotting were tested using a number of predictions about the stotting individual, its conspecifics and the predator (usually cheetahs), some of which were pertinent to several hypotheses. Although a number of hypotheses were supported by some of the…Expand
