Activity budgets and exhibit use of captive grey wolves related to exhibit familiarity by Morgan Beisbier

Description

Wild and captive grey wolves (Canis lupus) not only live in different habitats, but they also have different necessary survival activities. These differences give rise to questions concerning exhibit familiarity and the correlation with activity levels. In the present study, activity budgets of male grey wolves from two different locations with differing levels of exhibit familiarity were observed. The results of this study show that there is a significant difference between the activity levels and exhibit use of habituated wolves at the Milwaukee County Zoo and the unhabituated wolves at the Menominee Park Zoo. It is also shown that there is no significant change in activity over time in either wolf pack.
