This chapter examines the predation and alarm behaviors in treeshrews. It explains that the chief antipredator strategy of treeshrews is to avoid being noticed, and they accomplish this by inconspicuous movements and by keeping undercover. Each treeshrew species can be identified by its distinctive alarm calls, and most alarm calling is accompanied by an upward flick of the tail to vertical.

Keywords:   treeshrews, alarm behaviors, antipredator strategy, inconspicuous movements, alarm calling
