AbstractThe social behaviour and mating tactics of four male Egyptian mongooses (Herpestes ichneumon) of different body mass in Dofiana National Park (Southwestern Spain) were studied using radio-tracking. The biggest male exhibited polygynous behaviour, maintaining contacts with at least 4 females, but spending little time with each one of them (4% per day), whereas a smaller male exhibited monogamous behaviour, maintaining contact with only one female with whom he spent more time (29% per day). Data on two other males (one bigger and another smaller) suggested they could be included in each one of the previously described pat­ terns, respectively. Body mass appeared to be the only factor explaining the variations in social behaviour and mating tactics of these Egyptian mongoose males
[FR] Las comportements sociaux et systèmes dappariement de quatre mangoustes IchneUion (Herpestes ichneumon) males ont été dtudies par radio-pistage dam le Parc National de Doilana (sud-ouest de rEspagne). Le mflle Ic plus grand a adoptd un système de type poly­ game en s’associant aver au moms quatre femelles mais ne passant que peu de temps avec cha­ cune d bntre cItes 4 % par jour). Un male de plus petite taille a adopté un système de type mono- game et dtait associé avec une seule femelle avec laquelle ii passait une plus grande proportion de son temps (29 % par jour). Des données sur deux autres males, (l’un de grande et lautre de petite taille) suggèrent que ces derniers peuvent être rattachés a lun ou l’autre des types cotnpor­ tcmentaux décrits. La masse corporefle semble êire le seal facteur rcsponsable de Ia variabilitd des comportenients sociaux et d’appariement des mangoustes Ichneumon males.
