Studies on the visual learning capacity of the tree wallaby dendrolagus

, : Studies on the visual learning capacity of the tree wallaby dendrolagus. Saeugetierkundliche Mitteilungen 30(1): 3-12

The visual learning ability of 3 tree-kangaroos was tested in unpunished pair choice experiments. More active animals learned faster than the calmer ones. The learning capacity uniformly amounted to 5 pairs of patterns. All animals were able to generalize when learning new ones.

Agile wallaby (Macropus agilis), red-necked wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) and Goodfellow's tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus goodfellowi). The water diffusional permeability (P(d)) of red blood cells (RBC) from agile wallaby (Macropus agilis), red-necked wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) and Goodfellow's tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus goodfellowi) was monitored using an Mn(2+)-doping (...

A 47-day-old orphaned Goodfellow's tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus goodfellowi) joey was successfully cross-fostered onto a yellow-footed rock wallaby (Petrogale xanthopus). The joey was subsequently taken for hand-rearing at age 5 months. This is...

The behavior of 2 spp. of tree-kangaroos (D. dorianus, D. inustus) was studied in several zoological gardens. Differences in locomotion, sleeping and resting positions, foraging, comfort-movements and periods of activity are noted.
