Frustrated appetitive foraging behavior, stereotypic pacing, and fecal glucocorticoid levels in snow leopards ( Uncia uncia ) in the Zurich Zoo
Contributor(s):: Burgener, N., Gusset, M., Schmid, H.
This study hypothesized that permanently frustrated, appetitive-foraging behavior caused the stereotypic pacing regularly observed in captive carnivores. Using 2 adult female snow leopards (U), solitarily housed in the Zurich Zoo, the study tested this hypothesis experimentally with a novel...

Cat Person, Dog Person, Gay, or Heterosexual: The Effect of Labels on a Man's Perceived Masculinity, Femininity, and Likability
Contributor(s):: Mitchell, R. W., Ellis, A. L.
American undergraduates (192 male, 521 female) rated masculinity, femininity, and likability of two men (one highly masculine and unfeminine, one normally masculine with low femininity) from a videotaped interaction. Participants were informed that both men were cat persons, dog persons,...

Social attachment in giraffe: response to social separation
Contributor(s):: Tarou, L. R., Bashaw, M. J., Maple, T. L.
Attachment relationships between animals are often studied by separating a pair of individuals and recording their subsequent behaviour. Studies of non-human primates have shown that separation results in changes that are indicative of both psychological and physiological stress. Similar results...

Development of stereotypies and polydipsia in wild caught bank voles ( Clethrionomys glareolus ) and their laboratory-bred offspring. Is polydipsia a symptom of diabetes mellitus?
Contributor(s):: Schoenecker, B., Heller, K. E., Freimanis, T.
The development of stereotypies and polydipsia was studied in wild caught bank voles (P: n=92) and their laboratory-bred offspring (F1: n=248). All animals were kept isolated in barren cages in the laboratory. In the P generation, no individuals developed stereotypies, but 22% developed...
Do the stereotypies of pigs, chickens and mink reflect adaptive species differences in the control of foraging?
Contributor(s):: Mason, G., Mendl, M.
Species differences in food-related stereotypies and natural foraging behaviour are discussed, and evolutionary explanations for these species differences, and reasons why apparent species differences in stereotypy may be artefacts of husbandry are postulated.
Does the number of daily meals affect feeding motivation and behaviour of gilts fed high-fibre diets?
Contributor(s):: Robert, S., Bergeron, R., Farmer, C., Meunier-Salaun, M. C.
The feeding motivation and feeding-related stereotypies of pregnant gilts fed high-fibre (HF) or concentrate (C) diets in one or two daily meals were compared. 24 gilts were fed either a concentrate or high-fibre diet with the same daily intake of energy and major nutrients. The effect of the...
Stereotypic behaviour is genetically transmitted in the African striped mouse Rhabdomys pumilio
Contributor(s):: Schwaibold, U., Pillay, N.
The development of stereotypic behaviour was studied in captive striped mice, Rhabdomys pumilio. Based on the findings of previous studies, it was hypothesized that there is a genetic basis of stereotypy in striped mice. Breeding and cross-fostering experiments were used to test this hypothesis....
Behavior of picketed circus elephants
Contributor(s):: Friend, T. H.
The behaviour of 14 female Asian (Elephas maximus) and 3 female African (Loxodonta africana) elephants who performed 2 shows each day with a circus that travelled to a new location (40 to 250 km from the previous day's lot) daily, was studied. When not performing or working, the elephants were...

The effect of increasing visual horizons on stereotypic weaving: implications for the social housing of stabled horses
Contributor(s):: Cooper, J. J., McDonald, L., Mills, D. S.
Stabled horses commonly perform stereotypic patterns of weaving, where the horse shifts its weight from side to side often swinging its head. Ten warm-blood types, of which five were known to reliably weave, were housed in similar 12 x 12 ft wooden loose boxes in a single stable block surrounding...
The effect of penning versus picketing on stereotypic behavior of circus elephants
Contributor(s):: Friend, T. H., Parker, M. L.
The behaviour of 9 female Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) who performed 2 shows each day with a circus that travelled to a new location in the USA (40 to 250 km from the previous day's lot) daily or every 2 days was studied during the 1996 and 1998 seasons. When not performing or working, the...
