Specific response of primates to snake predators
Regásková, Kristýna ; Landová, Eva (advisor) ; Lhota, Stanislav (referee)
The specific response to snake predators in primates is due to long coevolution with snakes. This long coevolution has led to a specific and complex response in primates when confronted with snakes. The cues by which primates recognize snakes versus other types of stimuli may be based on olfactory or visual information. Reactions such as a priori fear or avoidance may be followed by various antipredatory responses such as specific vocalizations, avoidance behaviour, early escape or, conversely, active defence and mobbing. The response to venomous snakes and constrictors can vary in many ways based on the different threat they pose. Key words: Predation, mobbing, snake, primates, vocalization, anxiety
