It is measured by the inability of the rat to swim, climb or keep their heads above the water over a short span of time (Arunrut, Alhandre, Chen, Cha, & Russo-Neustadt, 2009). Typically, in a forced swim test, the rat will swim hard for approximately 10 minutes, then give up and float until the experimenters take them out....   [tags: animal testing, rats, saline]

Dermal Protection in Mammalian Species

- ... (Vickaryous and Hall 2006) It is important to note, that unlike animals, such as turtles, the carapace is not directly connected the spine or ribs of the armadillo. (Vickaryous and Hall 2006) The mechanism in which armadillos use their shell to protect themselves is also very different than how a turtle would use its shell. The tiles of the osteoderms are connected to each other via collagen fibers known as Sharpeys’ fibers (Fig. 2). These fibers add tensile strength to the shell, allowing for the shell to be more durable, while also not requiring it to be entirely rigid....   [tags: animals, reptiles, armadillo]
