Mink hydration test

5 07 2015

As part of assessinIMG_2086g how well mink in different size cages cope with heat (since if floor areas are small they may not be able to lie spread out without touching, which we suspect could compromise their abilities to stay cool), my MSc student Gillian Hatch is evaluating how dilute their urine is. We want to compare samples from adjacent cages differing in floor area, and I was hoping this could just be done visually.

Yep, looks like that’ll work!
