Abstract

Play is sometimes considered as an indicator of positive animal welfare. However, it is not yet sufficiently understood whether or not social play among adults can be considered as such an indicator because it is rare in adult animals. This study investigates the factors that influence social play...

Abstract

Understanding how social relationships affect long-term stress is important because stress has a profound impact on the welfare of animals and social relationships often exert a strong influence on their stress responses. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between social...

Abstract

Wild chimpanzees possess various behavioral skills that allow them to respond flexibly and so adapt to complex environments. However, we lack quantitative data on the number of captive chimpanzees housed in zoos within Japan, with such behavioral skills. In this study, we conducted a survey of...

Abstract

Japanese zoos have bred many red pandas. Captive breeding has been going well, and approximately 20 red pandas are born every year in Japan. Unfortunately, some individuals become hand-reared for various reasons. For reproduction, some hand-reared individuals are trained for encounter with unknown...

Abstract

Many chimpanzees throughout the world are housed in captivity, and there is an increasing effort to recreate social groups by mixing individuals with captive origins with those with wild origins. Captive origins may entail restricted rearing conditions during early infant life, including, for...

Abstract

The ability of animals to survive dramatic climates depends on their physiology, morphology and behaviour, but is often influenced by the configuration of their habitat. Along with autonomic responses, thermoregulatory behaviours, including postural adjustments, social aggregation, and use of trees ...

Abstract

We recorded data on proximity (defined as horse's length) of Grant's zebra in a captive group at Hiroshima City Asa Zoological Park. This group contained three adult males (4 or more years old), seven adult females (4 or more years old), and 7-8 immature individuals (less than 4 years old). The...

Abstract

I investigated characteristics of allo-grooming performed by captive Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) in Ueno Zoological Gardens, Tokyo, Japan. I specifically studied frequency, partner composition, and direction of the grooming among one troop of the macaques. In Ueno, old and dominant animals...

Abstract

Population control is essential for animal welfare and human safety in free-ranging or captive settings, especially when resources are limited. As an alternative to lethal control, contraceptive methods such as castration in males can be a practical solution, because the testicles are a visual cue...
