  • ABSTRACT Caviomorph species are well known for their social nature and variety of vocal sounds used in intra-species communication, making them ideal candidates for the study of vocalisations. Here, I provide a much needed categorisation for one such species, the Degu Octodon degus. By analysing 3535 vocal sounds, I demonstrate that there are 15 distinct categories for degu vocalisations, showing that degus have a wider and more complex vocal repertoire than was previously assumed. I find that… CONTINUE READING
