Action: Carnivores: Feed individuals separately
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- No evidence was captured for the effects of feeding individuals separately on captive carnivores.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Feeding animals separately rather than in a group can reduce aggression as well as enable keepers and veterinarians to monitor food intake per animal, promoting the health and welfare of the individuals.
