A mark-recapture study of T. salva produced an estimate of daily survivorship of 0.91. Males were more prone to abandon a habitat if they did not obtain females during their first day’s visit to the site. The average time between marking and last recapture of recaptured males was 7.06 days. Young males mated with higher frequency than older males, but no individual male obtained more females than would be expected if matings were random.
