The monkey-to-deer solicitations that we recorded during the course of heterospecific consortships were persistent and conspicuous. They were diverse in their form and directed toward a particular target. Inter-mount behaviors exhibited by female monkeys included intense behavioral patterns (e.g., biting, bouncing, and pulling) focused toward a particular deer target. While gazing at their deer partners, they emitted high-pitched vocalizations that are indistinguishable from the typical estrus calls performed by females in this primate species during homospecific consortships. Finally, when their deer partners walked away from the heterospecific consortships, the female monkeys often displayed sexually motivated tantrums which consisted of crouching on the ground, body spasms and screaming, while gazing at the deer.
