Section B.  For this section of this assignment, you are going to make observations again; however,  this time, you will be selecting one animal to observe for a given period of time. You  should select one bonobo to focus on for a period of ten minutes. You will be indicating  how many times the animal does certain behaviors during this ten-minute period. Every  thirty seconds, you will record how many times the animal does the behaviors listed in  the chart below. The numbers across the top of the chart indicate the time intervals (for  example, ‘1’ indicates the first 30 seconds, ‘2’ indicates the second 30 seconds, etc.) you  should have checkmarks or numbers all the way across the chart for different categories.  What activity did the animal you selected do the most often? Sitting and eating What activity did it engage in the least? It was never chased or attacked.   Out of the  activities it did at least once, it engaged in display once. 7

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
