No money for old rope

21 11 2015

Maria has organized a whole team of hardworking undergraduate volunteers (sorry folks) to score mink-chewed ropes for us. These used to be enrichments in our cage height experiment, and we’re now assessing how vigorously each was chewed as a rough proxy for how much of their active time each mink spent under the solid or mesh cage ceilings used in this study (this to complement the direct & video observations that were only collected during daylight hours).
