Abstract:

The first of two experiments monitored the water consumption of 11 chinchillas for 83 consecutive hr. Ss displayed not only a diurnal rhythm of drinking, but faster rhythms as well. Ss drank at a consistent rate of 3 to 4 lickssec. Significant between-S differences in the duration of bursts of licking were found. In the second experiment, ten non-water-deprived chinchillas showed a preference for apple juice over water as measured by lickshr. Author
