The purpose of this study was to measure the effects that toxicosis had on the hamster's predatory behavior and to compare these results with those found in previous studies with grasshopper mice. A 0.15 M LiCl injection caused hamsters to develop a greater aversion and to inhibit their feeding and attack responses more frequently toward a house cricket(More)
This study examined the effect that toxicosis paired with the presence of a distinctive texture had on the inhibition of the grasshopper mouse's predatory attack. The first experiment measured the context in which tactile cues would be most effective by presenting prey with various combinations of added stimuli. The combination of distinctive tactile,(More)
The responses toward denatonium saccharide and quinine by three rodent species differ from those exhibited by humans. This study measured the relative aversiveness of these two compounds in grasshopper mice (Onychomys leucogaster) to determine if this species responded similarly to or differently from these other rodents. In a choice test, the mice clearly(More)
