These are the species mentioned in the film that was shown on Friday 23 rd . Remember that you were to pay particular attention to ultimate/proximate explanations for the behaviors, whether the animals built shelters or nests from material in the environment, their own secretions, or both. Another observation was whether the animal seemed to show these building behaviors innately, or if there were learning components involved. Ultimate/proximate? Nest from materials in environment/own/or both Innate nest building behaviors or learning? Hermit Crabs – Ultimate – crab grows and if shell is too big can get eaten. Shell from environment. Possible innate/and learning involved Rosy Bee-eaters – Ultimate/proximate – good location, plenty food, no predators land Digs nest in sand One digs, one chases strangers away When breeding season is over, the river rises over the sand bank but by then the eggs would have hatched Prairie dogs- Digs for protection b/c being exposed can be dangerous
