Abstract

The present study examined the activity budgets of 15 African elephants (1 bull, 6 cows, 2 male juveniles, 2 female juveniles, and 4 male calves) living at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park during the summers of 2010 and 2011. Onsite behavioral data (n=600 hr) were collected for approximately 12 weeks...

Abstract

Previous studies of nonhuman primates have found relationships between health and individual differences in personality, behavior, and social status. However, despite knowing these factors are intercorrelated, many studies focus only on a single measure, for example, rank. Consequently, it is...

Abstract

Long-term animal behavior studies are sometimes conducted at a single site, leading to questions about whether effects are limited to animals in the same environment. Our ability to make general conclusions about behavior is improved when we can identify behaviors that are consistent across a range ...

Abstract

The potential application of GPS technology in determining relationships among social animals was addressed in this study of eight African elephants residing at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, CA, USA between 2009 and 2011. GPS coordinates were collected over nine 24 h periods from...

Abstract

Zookeepers of the Oakland Zoo developed a training method for giraffes that combines traditional operant conditioning with elements of the Tellington-TTouch-method. The technique enabled routine blood collection without compulsory measure, acupuncture, massage, X-rays and ultrasonic testings....

Abstract

The use of tracking devices (e.g., VHF radio collars, GPS collars, ear transmitters) enables researchers to assess activity budgets, species-specific movement patterns, effects of environmental enrichment, and exercise levels in zoo animals. The fundamental assumption in these studies of tagged...

Abstract

Following observations in California, during, 1993-95, the existence of both semi-claustral founding and worker-type behaviour are reported in new gynes of Messor andrei. Worker-type behaviour may be a non-adaptive corollary of semi-claustral colony founding, and represents little cost to colony...

Abstract

Some social insects produce workers of variable size and/or shape. One hypothesis to explain such variation is that it increases colony efficiency in performing diverse tasks, with greater efficiency leading to greater colony-level fitness. Using the granivorous ant Messor pergandei, which produces ...

Abstract

Maintenance of geographical variation in mode of colony foundation was investigated in Messor pergandei in the field in California and Arizona during February-March 1995. The results of the survey confirmed the existence of large-scale geographical variation in colony founding. The range of M....
