Predators have evolved strategies to maximize nutrient intake within different kinds of habitats by selecting different prey species. Prey selection determines spacing patterns and structure of social patterns between predators. Prey selection is critical in understanding life-history strategies. A total of 50 scat samples were collected from five ranges in the Srivilliputtur Grizzled Giant Squirrel Sanctuary. Among the collected 50 scat samples in Srivilliputtur Grizzled Giant Squirrel Sanctuary. Leopard (n=36) accounted for more scat samples followed by Wild Dog (n=5), Tiger (n=4) and Jungle cat (n=3).
