Chemical communication by ano-urogenital glands was studied in genets (G. genetta L.). Seasonal variations in scent marking frequencies were shown to occur, the most striking of which appeared during the rutting period. At this time marking increased in males, and decreased in females. There also appeared to be a relationship between social status and scent marking in males, since in one group the dominant male marked very frequently, while a subordinate conspecific did not mark at all.
