Predatory behavior toward an unpalatable sympatric prey was examined in the southern grasshopper mouse, Onychomy torridus (Coues). Mice preferred the palatable grasshopper Brachystola magna over the unpalatable secretion-producing grasshopper Taeniopoda eques. Consumption of T. eques decreased 35% while consumption of B. magna remained stable during three nights of testing. Olfactorily mediated attack suppression was demonstrated when O. torridus rejected palatable B. magna which had been… CONTINUE READING
