Gymnotiform electric fish are capable of locating and approaching an electrically discharging conspecific over a range of 1-2 m in a behavior called passive electrolocation. This paper investigates the movements of two species in experiments with approaches to stationary dipoles that are either silenced or jumped to a new direction during an approach. Gymnotus carapo fail to find an electrode source in trials in which the dipole electrode is switched off in mid-track. They slow their approach… CONTINUE READING
