Unusual foraging behaviour of two introduced mammals following degradation of their island habitat

  • Richard B Sherley

Abstract

This paper reports opportunistic observations of novel foraging behaviour by European fallow deer and European rabbit on Robben Island during 2008. The reported behaviours are believed to have occurred in response to a reduced availability of natural browse and graze, caused at least in part by a substantial increase in herbivore density in the late 2000s
