[Initially the adult females supported Yeroen against his challenger, Luit. Yerocn often sat together with these supporters. Luit and the third adult male, Nikkie, together broke through these strong supporting relations of Yeroen : Luit did so mainly by isolating Yeroen from the females (through 'separating interventions') and Nikkie by keeping the females away from Yeroen-Luit conflicts. After both contesting males had achieved dominance over Yeroen, most females started to support the new α-male against the old one. During this period Yeroen seemed to become desired by Luit as a potential alliance partner. However, also Nikkie seemed to see advantages in an alliance with Yeroen. Although there are indications that Luit is going to win the competition with Nikkie over contacts with Yeroen, the ultimate choice with respect to the supporting relation will be to Yeroen himself., Initially the adult females supported Yeroen against his challenger, Luit.
