Trading habit

Jump to: navigation, search

Trading habit is a behaviour exhibited by rodents (and more specifically, by pack rats) in which they will drop an item that they are currently carrying in favour of another, more attractive item. It is particularly pronounced in the Bushy-tailed Woodrat, which may incorporate a wide range of natural and manufactured items in its midden.[1]
