Holekamp and Smale (1998) have suggested that low levels of testosterone in natal males before they disperse may be due to persistent exposure to female kin, and that following dispersal and exposure to novel sexually receptive females in a new clan, male testosterone levels increase. However, the existence of reproductively active, postdispersal natal males in Serengeti clans suggests that testosterone levels in males may be more closely linked to male–male conflict over access to mates (Goymann, 1999).
