Further analyses were done, using circular statistics, to demonstrate the bearing (360 deg) and the proportion of time that each of the six lions spent from the CP of their home range (Figures 27 – 32). These results reflect the data displayed by the Spider Analyses, but are more sensitive to the proportional amount of time the lions spent in the different areas. This can also be observed in the Kernel contours (Figures 7, 8, 10-12, 14).
