Question

Which type of animal behaviour is depicted in the picture given below?

  1. Instinct
  2. Conditioning
  3. Imitation
  4. Imprinting


Solution

The correct option is D Imprinting
Chickens and ducklings are able to walk almost immediately after hatching from the egg. Duckling can even swim after a few days. They recognize their mother because of a behaviour type called imprinting. Ducklings will follow the first moving object they meet after hatching. They become socially attached to this object and treat it as their mother. Imprinting lets young animals recognize their mother from a young age. They can follow her for food and protection.
