In this study the term artificial environment refers to anything outside of the natural habitat. The behaviors studied include: aggressive territory behaviors, feeding behaviors and communication behaviors. The behaviors were studied in Tigers, Lions, Cougars and Bobcats. These cats were studied during feeding, while on tours, and while doing normal walk-arounds.
