  • The diurnal behavioral rhythm and time budgets of dwarf blue sheep were studied by method of scan sampling. The behaviors recorded were classified into five groups: feeding, moving, standing, bedding, and other activities. During summer, there are three feeding peaks in diurnal time (6:00 -9:00, 10:00 -11:00 and 16:00 -20:00), and one bedding peak (11:00 -15:00). The dwarf blue sheep was found to use 30.14% (±3.32) of their time feeding, followed by bedding (26.44%±3.59), standing (24.90%±4.27), moving (15.73%±1.26), and others (2.82%±1.00).We also found that adult males spend more time on feeding and standing than other individuals, juveniles spend more time moving and other activities, while females spend more time on bedding.
