Differences in the parental care of the mouse with respect to the age of dead pups


Bollettino di Zoologia 50(3-4): 197-200
Differences in the parental care of the mouse with respect to the age of dead pups
Thirty virgin female albino mice, divided into 2 groups of 15, were each presented, for the 1st and only time, with a dead pup. The pups were also divided into 2 groups, 15 had been frozen when a day old, 15 when 10 days old. Analysis of the basic maternal activities and the comparison with the adult's self-grooming show: that even at a distance the dead pups provoke the adult to search for them and that some activities, and parental care on the whole, are more frequent, more timely and more prolonged in the case of newborn pups. The possible stimuli determining these differences in behavior are discussed.
