In many ungulate species, social organization of adults is based on a linear dominance hierarchy, which in turn often positively correlates with age, body mass, and horn/antler size. In contrast to the social behavior of adults and specific mother-offspring interactions, the process of ungulate socialization in juveniles through contacts with other conspecifics is poorly understood, especially for hider species during their initial hiding period. Therefore, we investigated this process in goitered gazelle (Gazella subgutturosa), which is a typical hiding species, and analyzed all contacts between fawns and other conspecifics, omitting mother-young interactions, which are different by nature from other contacts and demands separate consideration. We found that apart from mothers, fawns interacted most often with nonmaternal adult females, less with other fawns and least with adult males and sub-adults. The frequency of the fawnsâ contacts with conspecifics other than their mother increased during May and early-June, reaching a maximum in late-June, when fawns had the most mobility and independence from their mothers. This frequency decreased in July, when fawns spent more time with their mothers and when they mostly followed the motherâs behavior. The interactions of adult males and sub-adults of both sexes with fawns were the most aggressive in character, involving frequent displays of butting and chasing. Aggressive interactions were fewer between adult females and fawns, while fawn-fawn interactions had least aggressive displays. The main cause of interactions between fawns and other conspecifics were attempts of these young gazelles to suckle from other adults and sub-adults, especially frequently from nonmaternal females. Only fawn-fawn contacts were not linked to suckling and seemed to relate mostly to the development of social behavior and dominance hierarchies.
