Unformatted text preview: 7. The authors of the experiment accepted the hypothesis and this was found in the results section. 8. The authors said that thermal radiation is a direct cue that gives reliable information about nearby surface temperatures. They proved that thermal radiation was the only cue available to the snakes to direct their movement toward refuge. 9. In the trials where animals with functional pits did not move toward the refuge, movements were distributed component of behavioral thermoregulation in this species. This seems especially likely considering that experimental animals performed well under spatially complex and ecological. This was found in the results section. 10.Trying to figure out the evolution of the facial pit was an area that needed further studying. This was found at the end of the discussion....
