Dr. Tulloch's Animal Behavior class had two new visits from different animals this month. The first was Bubba the miniature Vietnamese pig, belonging to students Shannon Logue and Ashley Bialiff.

Students attempted to condition Bubba to choose a certain blanket over another when placed on the floor.

The second guests were two dogs of different breeds, Zora and Canela.

The goal with this activity was for the students to observe breed differences in canine aggresssion. Both dogs were allowed to wander the room with students paying particular attention to their interactions.
