Individual vigilance of African herbivores while drinking: the role of immediate predation risk and context

Abstract:

Perceived risk of predation is considered to influence individual prey vigilance, but little is known about the extent to which the context (e.g. distance to cover, group size) and the immediate presence of predators determine individual prey vigilance. We combined behavioural data on individual vigilance of herbivores at waterholes with fine-scale spatiotemporal data from 27 African lions, Panthera leo, fitted with GPS radiocollars to test whether individual prey vigilance increases...
