Abstract

Golden hamsters, Mesocricetus auratus, ran more in wheels with the floor covered by a plastic mesh than in wheels with the usual rods. This preference was evident both in tests with a single wheel and in tests when the animals were offered a choice between two wheels. Phase shifts following a 3h confinement to a novel wheel were greater if the novel wheel had the plastic cover.
