This study was conducted at Xinglongshan Musk Deer Farm, Gansu Province, North West China between June 2004 and January 2005. Focal sampling and all occurrence surveying was used to record the behavior of 42 female captive alpine musk deer (Moschus sifanicus) in the lead up to the 2005 breeding season. The frequencies of 12 behavior categories were recorded and the behavioral patterns compared between successful breeding females (n = 28) and barren females (n = 14). Results indicated that, during non-mating season (August to October), females which were barren in the following season, demonstrated more affinitive and self-directed behavior as compared to successful breeding females. Tail pasting behaviour was expressed only by successful breeding females, and was observed only within the mating season (November to March). These findings have important implications in captive breeding programs and improving musk deer farming throughout China.
