Abstract

Daily activity should be studies for each species or animals before providing a new environment in the zoo. The activity budget for primates in the zoo is differences from those in the forest. A study on the daily activity budget of Common Marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) in captivity has been conducted at Zoo Johor, Johor Darul Takzim from 15 August until 4 September 2016. The aim of this study was to determine the most frequent daily activities performed by Common Marmoset (C. jacchus) in captive condition and to compare the behaviours between the ages of Common Marmoset (C. jacchus) in captive condition. The scan sampling method was used to observed the 7 daily behaviours among the 3 adults, 3 juveniles and a baby in this study. Locomotion behaviour is the most frequent daily activity that performed by the Common Marmoset whereas the fighting behaviour is the lowest daily activity behaviours. By using Chi-square, there are showned that there are significant difference in all seven behaviours since the p ≤ 0.05. In this research, analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to test the significant differences among the ages. For the adult, there are significant differences sinces the p ≤ 0.05 which is 0.002. For the juvenils, there also significant differences sinces the p ≤ 0.05 which is 0.001 whereas for the baby, there are no significant differences among them. As conclusion, this scientific research is important in order to add knowledge and understand about the daily activity budget of Common Marmoset in the Zoo Johor which can lead to the effective management and conservation of this species in the future either ex-situ or in-situ.
