How is the evidence assessed?
Background information and definitions
Anticipating the arrival of food can lead to stress behaviours in captive animals. Changing the times when feeds are given to captive primates throughout the day reduces the predictability of feeds with the aim of increasing the amount of time animals spend foraging for foods by decreasing stress behaviours.
