NAL call number: QL55 A1L3
The behaviour of group-housed baboons was compared before and after the provision of durable cage toys. One adult male hamadryas baboon and 13 adult female olive baboons living in a large enclosure were observed after they were given seven nylon bones, s e ven Kong toys and seven Plaque Attackers. Observations were conducted four times per week on each subject over a 6-week period. Abnormal, cage-directed, inactive and self-directed behaviours all significantly decreased after the provision of the toys, wh i le enrichment-directed activities significantly increased. Aggression did not differ between the no toy and toy conditions. Approximately 26% of the baboons were using the toys at any one time, and use of the Kong toys and the bones was higher than that o f the Plaque Attackers. Individuals who used enrichment structures already present were also those who used the new toys the most.
