In rhesus macaques-the predominant species found in laboratories-the incidence of self-biting may be as high as 14% (recorded in a colony of single-caged males; Jorgensen, Kinsey, & Novak, ). The environmental enhancement plan of the WRPRC can serve as an example that effective and safe enrichment can readily be provided for caged rhesus macaques without undue cost. Equipment must be durable, nontoxic, easily sanitized and disinfected, and readily assembled or prepared by animal care personnel. We developed a portable exercise cage for singly housed macaques from pre-existing but outdated caging; our cage met the .

Eight single-caged adult rhesus macaques were given the choice of freely collecting their standard food ration, i.e. 33 biscuits, from an ordinary food box or working for its retrieval from a custom-made food puzzle. During a one-hour observation session following the simultaneous distribution of biscuits in both feeders, individuals spent on average a total of 32 sec retrieving biscuits.

Abstract: Between and , a project was undertaken at Oxford University to develop innovative housing systems for rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) to encourage group housing, improve environmental enrichment and develop the level of staff:monkey interaction. The management changes resulted in less aggressive, more cooperative animals.   Ozone-induced enhancement of airway hyperreactivity in rhesus macaques: Effects of antioxidant treatment Author links open overlay panel Cameron H.
