Abstract

Mother knows best. For young herbivores paying attention to mother is crucial for learning where and where not to go and what foods to eat and to avoid. Through interactions with mother, young animals learn about their surroundings from the locations of water, shade, cover, and predators, to the kinds and locations of nutritious and toxic foods.
