Abstract

The effects of housing conditions (individual or grouped) on the biting of an inanimate target by confined male mice and rats were measured. It was observed that, for both mice and rats, individual housing markedly increased the number of target bites per session. These results indicate that the target‐biting paradigm is sensitive to those factors responsible for the increase in fighting behavior following individual housing.
