3. A novel fish behavior: "Floating" of Paramisgurnus dabryanus loaches.

Unusual behavior has been noted in Paramisgurnus dabryanus loaches, which have been seen to float on the water, both on aquafarms and laboratories. Animal behavior usually reflects adaptation to the environment, but this "floating" behavior undoubtedly increases the risk of being predated. In order ...

7. Broiler breeders roosted more on slats than on perches during the laying period.

Roosting on elevated areas is part of natural chicken behaviour, and therefore perches are required for broiler breeders in some countries. However, elevated slats may also meet the behavioural requirements. To date, hardly any research has been done on broiler breeder preferences for roosting on...
