Main results

  • Sniffing was the most observed log-directed behavior displayed by both the bush dogs and the tigers towards all four odor stimuli. 
     
  • The bush dogs displayed a significantly higher number of interactions towards the odorized logs than the tigers during the 20 days of observation. The bush dogs also displayed a significantly higher number of interactions towards all four odor stimuli separately.  
     
  • The bush dogs displayed a significantly higher number of interactions towards the real pig blood compared to the other three odors tested.
     
  • There was no significant difference found in the tigers for the four odor stimuli. One reason for this is the low interest that the tigers displayed towards the odorized logs. However, the tigers did display slightly more interactions towards the 2-pentylfuran than the odor odors.
     
  • The bush dogs displayed the lowest number of interactions towards the isopentyl acetate and the tigers towards the diethyl phthalate.
     
  • When comparing the average time spent per interaction towards the logs the tigers spent significantly longer time interacting with the real pig blood than the bush dogs did. No other difference was observed.
