Spatial memory allows animals to remember where they have foraged and use that information to determine where they will travel and forage. Spatial abilities likely evolved as a survival mechanism to allow herbi-vores to forage more efficiently and safely. Spatial memory can be inferred when behavior can be predicted from an animal's prior experiences. Maze and arena studies have been used to demonstrate spatial memory in various livestock species. Anecdotal observations suggest that spatial… Expand
