image of Behaviour

[Ten pair of montane voles each received four successful tests of copulatory behavior. Each test was continued at least to a satiety criterion of ½ hr with no intromissions. The copulatory pattern of M. montanus contains multiple intromissions, thrusting during intromission, no lock, and multiple ejaculations. Mean intromission latency was 102 sec and a mean of five ejaculations preceded satiety. The satiety criterion usually was reached not between series of intromissions as in most other species, but as a failure to attain ejaculation within a series. Behavior accompanying copulation was typical of Cricetidae. Introduction of an unmated female at satiety produced a resumption of copulation with a pattern typical of early series. Introduction of a mated female produced less effect; rcintroduction of the original female never resulted in additional ejaculations., Ten pair of montane voles each received four successful tests of copulatory behavior.
